Calvary Welcomes Students for New School Year

Calvary Welcomes Students for New School Year

Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

A large portion of this year’s Registration Day was rainy and dreary here in Kansas City.  However, we did not let that dampen our excitement over welcoming new students to Calvary!

New students checking in with Student Services

A sizable group of men and women went through the check-in process on Thursday, and some of them also moved into the dorm.  Thankfully the afternoon brought clearer skies for transporting student belongings.

Arvest Bank representatives greeted new students.

We are anticipating a terrific school year, and we are certainly thankful for each student whom the Lord has brought to Calvary.

New students learned about their Christian Ministry responsibilities.

Please join us in praying especially for these new students and their families as they adjust to a new normal.

Calvary Named One of the Twenty Most Affordable Private Colleges in the United States

Calvary Named One of the Twenty Most Affordable Private Colleges in the United States

Student Loan Hero recently completed a study showing that many graduates of many colleges end up with more student debt than those of public colleges. But there are some important exceptions: “according to new Student Loan Hero college rankings, some nonprofit private colleges are worth a second look — even for cost-conscious college applicants. If you’ve been dreaming of the private-college experience on a public-college budget, start your search with this list of the 20 most cost-effective private colleges.” Calvary is ranked #9 on the list of the top 20 most cost-effective private colleges in the United States.

The ranking is a reflection of Calvary University’s ongoing commitment to reducing educational costs while increasing educational quality. Earlier this year Calvary University reduced all of its tuition rates and introduced a $250 per credit hour tuition rate for Military and Veterans studying at the undergraduate and graduate level, and a $250 per credit hour tuition rate for people in full-time ministry.

Pray for Students over Christmas Break

Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

As we reach the end of this year, please remember the Calvary students in your prayers.  Some of them have final exams, papers, and projects to finish.  Others may be done with classwork, but now they are traveling home for Christmas break.  Pray for spiritual and physical protection.  Intercede especially for those students who are going home to unsaved family and friends.  Pray that God would give them opportunities to share about the Savior and that they would put into practice the lessons they have learned at Calvary.  Also pray for the new students who will be joining the Calvary family in January that God would supply their every need.

New Students Formally Welcomed at Convocation

New Students Formally Welcomed at Convocation

Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

Dr. Bitner welcomed the new students.

On Wednesday, chapel time was devoted to welcoming the new students via Convocation.   Faculty wore regalia and lined the center aisle.  The new students entered to applause and sat in the first several rows.  Returning students and staff filled many of the remaining chairs.  Once the faculty made their way to the stage, Dr. Bitner read some of the history of convocation, and we sang a hymn.  Luke Pauli, the Student Senate President, gave a heart-felt charge to the new students and asked them to live each day as if it were their last.  Hailey Bair, a talented student, sang “How Great Thou Art.”  Dr. Cone’s presidential charge encouraged the students to be like Onesiphorus, who “refreshed” Paul as seen in 2 Timothy 1:16.

The students were told more than once that Calvary will provide them with a fine education – just like many other schools would.  However, what sets Calvary apart from those other schools is the family atmosphere.  Welcome to the family, new students!

What a beautiful sight – a chapel full of students!
