Community Life

The Office of Student Programming (OSP) is the hub of student activity at Candler School of Theology.

Through the OSP, a team of Candler student-staff facilitates community activities, programs and conversations. Throughout the year, Candler students, faculty, staff and their families gather for traditional events and holiday celebrations such as the early Thanksgiving Dinner and the festive End of the Year Party. Candler students also form relationships through informal interaction at lunchtime gatherings, study breaks, and special opportunities for enrichment and spiritual growth.

New traditions continue to form each year as students, staff and faculty introduce ideas and activities to share with the community. Some recently premiered events that have become annual occurrences include the Mardi Gras lunch and the Poor Seminarian’s Cook-Off.

The uniqueness of the Office of Student Programming is that its staff is comprised of Candler students. Learn more about the directors of the Office of the Student Programming and the student staff.
