    Falcon Formation

    Learning doesn't stop when you walk out of the classroom, leave the lab, or exit the library. At SPU, Falcons grow and develop in community; and Falcon Formation guides the offices of Student Life, Athletics, and Ministries as they partner with students.

    As research continues to show that student involvement and engagement results in students reporting both satisfaction and thriving, we hope that you'll look for ways to get involved. You'll have opportunities to lead, to serve, to be creative, and to learn through every experience you have while here.

    Engage. Change. It's what being a Falcon is all about... See you this fall! Learn more here.

    What's My Calling?

    At the Center for Career and Calling, we’re here to help you think through questions like: What should I major in? What career is a good fit for me? What is my calling? We can also help you write a resume, look for a job, and prepare for an interview. Whatever you need, our career counselors are here to meet with you in person, over the phone, or on skype all year round.

    You can even take a 1-credit class and learn how to write a cover letter, create a winning LinkedIn profile, and perfect your interviewing skills. Curious to learn more about your calling? This fall, check out the online Field Guide and start learning about your interests. It’s the perfect chance for you to recognize your potential and see what you uniquely offer the world.
