SAGU seeks creators, dreamers, and changemakers—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.

Your experience
Students describe SAGU as relational. Our Christ-centered environment fosters strong bonds with professors and other students, creating a comfortable and meaningful college experience.
You will grow among friends as you learn in a hands-on, Bible-based environment that prepares you to be confident in your skills and grounded in your faith after graduation.

SAGU’s Bible-based academic curriculum will challenge and stretch you to become the best in your field as you pursue your Christian purpose. Small class sizes allow you to know your professors and receive personalized instruction.

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

Uncommon destinations
Do you want to see the world? SAGU is nearing the end of a 10-year mission to provide service in every country, Indian state, and Chinese province by the year 2020. With more than 250 destinations, there is an opportunity to see every part of the world. SAGU has visited more than 160 destinations in eight years.
