Campus Events

Lots of fun & enriching activities & things to do! We want commuters to participate. Check out the calendar of events above or on EagleNet. 

Sample events:

Welcome Back Dinner – the very first week of school, before classes even begin, join the entire campus out on the Quad for a free dinner and concert.  
JBU Soccer Under the Lights – early in the fall, come support our incredible JBU soccer team. 
Breakaway – during the fall, a weekend away to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with God and your friends. Breakaway is filled with worship, devotions, a ropes course, riverfront activities, canyons, magical naps, and so much more.  
Homecoming – A week of fun activities, athletic games, the freshman play, and free food. Check this year’s schedule for more details.  
TP Game – Typically the first week in November, this is a legendary JBU tradition that has been featured on ESPN. If you haven’t heard about the TP Game before, stop everything and look up “JBU TP Game” – you will not be disappointed.  
Mock Rock – Late in the fall this Lip Sync show is guaranteed to make you smile. Students “sing” their hearts out to today’s pop hits and classics. Come and watch or sign up to be an act.  
Candlelight – This Christmas production is a favorite in Siloam Springs. The JBU choirs do an incredible job of singing in the holidays and reminding us of the reason for the season.  
Talent Show – In February, the talent show comes to town. Students get a chance to show off their skills and tricks. Judges and the audience decide who wins.  
Next Big Thing – Enjoy big singing competitions? The Next Big Thing, in the late spring, is for you! Come listen to the greatest artists from our campus as they compete for a recording deal. The stakes are high and the show is incredible.  

Hall Away From Home

We want each and every commuter to feel at home on campus. Hall Away From Home is a program that allows commuter students to plug into the ResLife community in the residence halls. Every interested commuter will be given a hall to join. Each commuter can join their hall for events, be included in the RA's email list, and join in the general community of the hall - a hall away from home. Contact Rob Rostoni for more information.
