Students at Pillar College develop incredibly close friendships with one another. Interactive classes and student led events along with dynamic and interactive classroom settings enhance these relationships.
Each instructor has his or her own approach to facilitating classes. Most classes at Pillar involve a great deal of discussion and interaction. Group and individual projects give students hands-on experience with the subject matter in addition to a more traditional academic environment. Relationships among students are enhanced by classroom activities.
Student Chapel is planned and conducted by the Pillar Student Government in cooperation with the Director of Student Life. Chapels frequently include guests who share about ministries that are significantly relevant to Pillar students. Student Chapel at Pillar is a part of academic life and counts toward class time.
