Our campus is vibrant, active, friendly, and connected. SCBA offers countless outlets to make friends, exercise talents, and serve others in the community. Students are engaged in activities outside the classroom, encouraged to take on leadership roles, and challenged to try out new pursuits. Below are some of the opportunities provided on campus.
