Born to be uncommon
SAGU seeks creators, dreamers, and change-makers—students who long to be uncommon. SAGU Lions are pioneers. They look for opportunity in surprising places. They take common ideas and moments, and create something truly uncommon.

SAGU academics will challenge and stretch you spiritually as you learn how your field relates to your Christian purpose. As a professor’s utmost priority, you receive personalized instruction in a small-class environment.

The relationships you form with Christian roommates and peers will provide a network of support and a family of friends that lasts beyond college. At SAGU, Lions are there to help, encourage, and pray for one another.
