For more than 170 years, Taylor University has stayed true to its heritage, challenging each generation of students to integrate faith with learning and follow Christ’s calling. Though our University’s history is not blemish-free, tough times have kept us anchored in faith and committed to our university’s mission. We are grateful for your interest in Taylor University and invite you to read more about Taylor distinctions and commitments.

Academic Excellence, Dedicated to Truth
With more than 60 majors across the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences, and a Foundational Core curriculum that promotes a broad base of knowledge, Taylor encourages students to ask hard questions, apply themselves to the tasks at hand, and embrace their callings. Our dedication to excellence in and out of the classroom has led to national recognition.

Wide variety of study and service abroad opportunities, Taylor is ranked third nationally of baccalaureate schools for the number of students who experienced a short-term trip; and 98% of graduates secure a full-time or part-time job, post-graduate internship, or graduate school placement within six months after graduation.

Vibrant Community United in Faith
As a discipleship community, where “iron sharpens iron” (Proverbs 27:17) and Christians can learn and grow together, 100% of TU students, faculty, and staff make a profession of faith before entering the University. That means everyone you meet on campus—classmate and Taylor employee alike—claim Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Taylor doesn’t monitor chapel attendance, and yet Taylor students fill the seats. Students hold each other accountable to their commitment to grow in their faith. Upperclassmen, who live on the same residence hall floors and wings as freshmen, forge their own mentor-like relationships among their underclassmen and encourage them to attend chapel, participate in small groups, and engage in floor/wing worship nights.

Talented Students Involved in Long-Standing Tradition
Our student body of about 1,900 possesses a tremendous amount of talent that is channeled through various avenues across campus. Students have applied their gifts in organizing and participating in on-campus music groups, Bible studies, and themed athletic events, and much more over the years. Rich traditions—running the gamut from lip-syncing/dance contests to bike races where the rider changes but the bike never stops—keep students engaged in Taylor culture and provide a great break from their every day academics and residence life.
