Our student organizations build your social life and your portfolio—all at the same time. Of course, the whole point is to serve Christ and each other in joy, scholarship, and sharing. In laughter, work, and play. You’ll do plenty of that, too.
Student Government Association (SGA)
We support an active SGA that is composed of full-time students at Montreat. It carries out its responsibilities through its executive, legislative, and judicial branches, which operate at all levels of campus living. It plays a primary role in interpreting the needs of students and in determining the quality of student life. The SGA works closely with the Assistant Dean for Student Life, and holds the authority to implement and make effective its responsibility to the college community. Officers are elected by the students.
The Service Learning Team
If you exemplify a strong interest in service and learning more about service, you’ll have the opportunity to serve on our Service Learning Team. The Service Learning Team has the privilege of hosting our annual Call to Action Week, to engage in leadership development, and to be mentored by the Director of Service Learning. Activities vary from helping prepare meals for the homeless of Asheville to assisting in relief work in Haiti.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)
Athletes (and non-athletes) from various sports gather together every Sunday to build fellowship through games, food, fun, worship—and to listen to a speaker. FCA seeks to encourage, empower, and motivate individuals to make a difference in the world for Christ. The meeting concludes with a time of prayer.
Young Life seeks to reach adolescents with the Good News of Jesus through meaningful relationships. Members meet the students where they are—in their schools, games, practices, work, and other places where they like to spend their time. Members utilize what the ministry calls “The 5 C’s” to communicate the love story of Christ to a hurting generation: contact work, clubs, campaigners (a biblical discipleship meeting), camp, and committee.
