SNU Life

So what is life really like as a traditional student at SNU?

It feels like home. It’s our priority to create a place for you to connect. For some this looks like hanging out in one of our residence halls, taking some time to meet a friend for coffee in our campus coffee shop, leading a small group or chapel worship, or even getting involved in student leadership or a club. SNU prides itself on a Christian environment where individuals are valued and every student’s success matters.

Since the needs, interests, challenges, and concerns of college students are so varied, SNU provides numerous on-campus services to assist our students. Take a look.

The Office of Student Life is conveniently located on the lower floor of the Webster Commons. Several offices are and this area to provide services and answers for students. If you have questions feel free to call us at 405.491.6336 or email studentlife@p8uc6ql.com

Campus Life

As stated in the mission statement, the basic commitment of Southern Nazarene University is to “make Christlike disciples through higher education…” SNU is a community of both developing scholars and growing Christians. Thus, each student is encouraged to recognize the privileges available to participate in a community committed to Christian scholarship. Behavioral expectations emerge because of the unique nature of this community. Students, by choosing to enroll at SNU, indicate their desire and willingness to live in harmony with these responsibilities of membership in the University community.
