Alums are welcome to participate in community days every Wednesday of the school year with worship, lunch, and fellowship. In addition to numerous other events during the year, such as our Lowell Event held each semester, we have one special “Community Day” each fall to welcome new students, staff, and faculty, and to honor our alums. We hope you can join us on that special day so we can honor your legacy and your many contributions, making STH what it is today.
