It is a Christian institution, so you have to accept that people of the LGBT persuasion are lovingly addressed, but are not permitted to study at this school if they insist on living this lifestyle in conjunction with their Christian faith. People who have these desires but are seeking to pursue Christ in spite of them are openly welcomed and free to participate in all aspects of student life. Similarly, people of other religions are not permitted to attend these schools because it is a Christian school that aims to educate and send out Christian leaders and educators into the world. That is not intolerance, it is consistent with the goals of the school and its students.

The seminary offers undergrad degrees ranging from business, science, math, theology, etc; whereas, the seminary offers theological based programs (MDiv., MA, MACE, Ph.D, Ed.D, etc) that prepare future leaders for the church. Classes are small and great professor interaction. The faculty is world renown and are specialists in their field of study.

Southern is an academically rigorous campus that has high standards of education and achievement. However, the professors are warm, inviting, and humble in their approach to students. Classes are generally small that allows for attention to students with professor interaction helping student learning.
