Celebrate with us!

Events taking place from January through December 2018 will celebrate the University’s 50th anniversary. Some are annual events, and others are signature events, planned specifically for the 50th anniversary. Together, these events emphasize Heritage Christian University’s focus on shaping the future. March will be a particularly exciting month as we celebrate our alumni in our annual Alumni Days event. This year the theme is “Jubilee.” The following week, March 5-9, we will host “Founders Week” to celebrate the founding of Southeastern Institute of the Bible in 1968. We hope you will join us at one or several of the events that week. Other events throughout the year include 50 service projects, special library exhibits, exciting chapel features and the release of a 50th Anniversary book, and much more!
