Life at Criswell
A Criswell education begins with Scripture, preparing graduates to serve, cultivate change, and solve problems.
At Criswell, you will be connected with experiences, people, and communities. Our location in the 9th largest city in the US gives you access to great employment opportunities, amazing food, ministry opportunities, and incredible culture.
In contrast, our campus community is small and close-knit. From dodgeball tournaments and movie nights to open mics and coffee houses, you’ll flourish socially and spiritually during your college experience.
Our campus lives out the community characteristics of the gospel. You will share meals together, encourage classmates, and challenge and support others through the successes and challenges of life.
