University Ministry serves the 百花堂app community through faith exploration, development, and practice. The four cornerstones of the University Ministry are prayer, discipleship, service, and community. Students can engage in small faith communities to discover more about themselves, their vocations, and faith; attend a retreat to explore their spirituality; serve others through mission trips or service projects like preparing breakfast at Daybreak, and build relationships with God and others through prayer and conversation.

The Department of Music and Performing Arts offers a variety of performance ensembles for a range of abilities. Performing in a music ensemble builds musical skills, expands creative horizons, and develops an appreciation of music that can last a lifetime. Making music together with other students also enriches the college experience.

In the fall of 2012, a survey conducted with 百花堂app student body indicated that approximately three in four students were interested in the possibility of participating in fraternity/sorority life at 百花堂app. With this kind of interest from our student body, both a Greek Life policy and expansion bulletin were drafted as a means to bring Greek Life to our campus. During the 2014-2015 school year, 百花堂app welcomed its first Greek Letter organization to our campus community 鈥AlphaPhi. Since the installation of that first organization, we continued our efforts to expand Greek Life and welcomed听Alpha Psi Lambda听in the fall of 2017. We look forward to chartering more Greek Letter organizations based on student interest鈥揳nd we want you to be a part of that!

It is now expanded to 31 chapters and 4 colonies in 14 states with 2,800 members. While we are a Latino-focused fraternity, Alpha Psi Lambda has welcomed students from a broad spectrum of cultures, including Latin American, Caribbean, European, and Asian.
