Get Involved: Traditions

White Light EventThese are just a few of the campus traditions that we look forward to each year. 

Rootbeer Fest—We kick off the start of each new school year with a sand volleyball tournament, rootbeer floats and other outdoor games. This is a part of our Welcome Week, where there are activities each night. 

Homecoming Hoedown—Line dance, break out your western wear and join the fun! This hilarious event happens each year during Homecoming week.

Thrift Store Prom—Hit the thrift-stores! Students compete to win the tackiest "thrift store" prom outfit during an old-school roller skating bash.  

Prayer Walk—We start each year with the Pioneer Prayer Walk. Students, faculty and staff walk the entire campus and pray over the coming school year on a night during our Welcome Week. This is a special tradition for us! 

White LightDuring Welcome Week, we light the campus for a magical night of music and fellowship. Students dress up and enjoy a chocolate fountain. 

Campus Traditions

After 50 years of students becoming Pioneers, some traditions have come and gone. But the thread that ties us throughout the generations is students involved in this vibrant community of believers.
