Ask anyone on campus and they'll be quick to tell you Bryan College is all about getting involved. This place is a true community—a family. But this is also a place where you can be you, and everyone is better off because of that. At Bryan you will be encouraged to celebrate your individuality, and there are dozens of ways to get involved on campus...
Practical Christian Involvement
PCI houses a diverse group of volunteer outreach ministries. The student-led teams are each an innovative way to serve the community around Bryan. One of the most recent additions to the teams is a group that helps coordinate giving blood plasma to support orphans in India. Check out the entire listing of ministry groups.
PCI also includes MLK Community Service Day. Instead of taking a vacation on Martin Luther King Day, the entire Bryan community of students, faculty, and staff leave the campus for hard work. Leaves are raked, walls are painted, and people in the community are helped in a variety of meaningful ways.
The Bryan community marks this day on the calendar each year as a day to serve its friends and neighbors. It always proves to be a time of encouragement and bonding.
The Student Government Association (SGA) is a major part of the activities and happenings at Bryan. SGA officers are always involved in planning purposeful events—from banquets to epic events like the Barbarian Wars. The Student Senate provides a venue for student representation to the college administration.
The SGA also manages clubs—small groups promoting a specific interest. These clubs are unique places to get to know others in a distinctive context. From coffee and anime to volleyball and bicycle, clubs are a great venue for connecting with others who have similar interests. Learn more about events like the Film Festival,
check out our Barbarian Wars,
and other Bryan activities.
