Beacon Nights

On Friday nights students can attend free Beacon Nights.

One thing we never hear concerning student activities is “there’s nothing to do around here.” So if you’re looking for a university that has a community built-in, look no further.


Wellness Programs

We recognize and value the importance of mental health and student wellness. Our Wellness Programs offer a variety of activities, chapel speakers, and resources focusing on things like sexual assault awareness, vices, and civic engagement.


If you love competing, enjoy being on a team, or want to venture into a new sport, Intramurals are a great way to get involved and stay active. Form your own team or join an existing group of friends, roommates, faculty, and staff in a regulated game of volleyball, basketball, ultimate Frisbee, powder puff football, and more. The program also offers outdoor recreation and fitness programming.

Sophomore Program

Designed only for Sophomores to inform and engage them in their college journey. This program is led by the student government Sophomore class representative in conjunction with the Student Programs team.  The program is a year-long series of events that provides an opportunities for students to hear from varying speakers about their experience as a sophomore in college, seminars on college living (i.e. internships, choosing a major, cooking lessons, budgeting lessons, etc.). Several social events also take place through the year to keep the class engaged with each other and at times partners with other classes in the university.  Bushnell University’s Sophomore Program is designed to help our students stay connected and be as prepared for the rest of their time at the university.

Beacon Madness

The ultimate pep rally! Bushnell University sets aside one late night in the fall to recognize all of our student-athletes and celebrate the beginning of the new school year & athletic seasons. Students cheer on their classmates as they participate in competitions, show off their dance moves and strive to be the winner of the loud crowd. It’s all about school spirit and being proud to be a BEACON!
