New round of 8-week courses, Preview Days

| Feb 22, 2021

"This Week on the Hill" is a weekly roundup of campus news, announcements, and events from Southwestern Seminary and Scarborough College.

Campus returns to normal operations

After an incredibly difficult week of winter storms, power outages, water shortages, and busted pipes, we're grateful that Southwestern Seminary and Scarborough College return to normal operations today. The campus infrastructure is being carefully monitored as warming temperatures may cause further problems.

In a Feb. 19 campus-wide email, President Adam W. Greenway said, “I could not be more proud of our faculty, staff, and students, all of whom have stepped up in a moment of need. I could tell you numerous stories of students serving one another, staff working around the clock to serve the seminary community, and faculty caring for student families. After witnessing our seminary family come together this week, I can attest to you that the spirit of Southwestern remains alive and well.”

The seminary community is especially thankful to our Facilities Maintenance, Student Life, Riley Center, and SWBTS Campus Police teams for keeping our campus and community safe throughout this crisis. We thank God for you!

Bringing the Word of God in Chapel this week will be Kevin Ueckert, pastor of First Baptist Church Georgetown, Texas.
