What’s there to do on campus?
Lots! There are always many student activities going on…. intramural and intercollegiate sports, devotionals, hanging out with friends in the Student Multiplex…Our full time student activities director keeps something going all the time. Check out the Student Life section of our website, and come back often for updates.
How many students are there on campus?
There are about 950 undergraduate students on the Montgomery campus during the day. Of those students we have around 650 living on campus.
We have about another 300 in the Jones school of Law here on our campus, as well as about 500 adult students who come to campus from time to time as a part of their education.
What is daily chapel all about?
Faulkner University has conducted daily chapel services on the Montgomery campus since it was established in 1942. The chapel programs allow an organized daily devotion for worshiping God and fellowshipping with Christians. The chapel programs are held at 10:30 a.m. Monday-Friday of each week, and are designed to complement the curricular and co-curricular goals of Faulkner.
The chapel programs foster the development of the whole person and provide students biblical, inspirational, educational and informative material. Chapel is frequently mentioned by alumni as one of the fondest memories of Faulkner.
Chapel attendance is required of all full-time students attending day classes, all residential students, faculty, and staff on the Montgomery campus. Chapel is open to all students, faculty, staff, friends, family members and other visitors who wish to worship. Chapel is a period of worship, and all attendees are expected to conduct themselves in a reverent manner.
Are there part time jobs available on or off campus?
Definitely. We even have a job placement officer who works to identify off campus employment opportunities for our students. On campus employment is done through the federal work study program. For these jobs, you’ve got to apply for federal aid and be awarded. Your admissions counselor or the financial aid personnel can help you with this.
What are the residence halls like?
The men’s halls (Baldwin, Davis and the new Freshmen Hall for Men) and the women’s halls (Harris and Burton) are fully equipped for modern residence life with WiFi access, free laundry facilities, snack areas, heating and air conditioning and large common areas for meeting and socializing. Each hall has full furnishings, a bed, closet area, dresser and desk, everything except appliances, linens and personal items. Each room has access to private bathroom facilities.
To address the needs of all students, each hall is staffed by a full time Resident Director and part time Resident Assistants. Additionally, the Resident Director has an apartment located just off the hall lobby and is available to assist students as the need arises.

RESIDENCE LIFE QUALIFICATIONS
Faulkner University requires all undergraduate students under the age of 21 and enrolled full-time at the Montgomery campus to live in University housing. The exceptions to this rule are married students, student living with their parents or legal guardians or students with enough academic credits to be classified as seniors.
Living in a University residence is considered a right extended to all students under the age of 21. The Harrison apartments, however, have been designated as “Privilege Housing.” and Faulkner has established special qualifications for the apartments. The qualifications listed below are used to guide the Director of Residence Life in assigning apartment rooms to qualified students:

Who can be involved with the Student Government Association?
All registered students at Faulkner University are members of the Student Government Association (SGA) and subject to the SGA’s policies and regulations. All students are encouraged to participate in the SGA general elections, committees, activities and events.
The SGA consists of two bodies, the Student Executive Board and the Student Senate, to fulfill the goals of the SGA and address student needs, issues and concerns. The Student Executive Board consists of the six SGA officers, President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Parliamentarian and Chaplain, and serves as a liaison between the student body and the University administration. The positions of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer are elected by the student body, and the positions of Parliamentarian and Chaplain are appointed by the SGA President. The SGA President may also appoint Executive Assistants along with other non-voting positions on the Student Executive Board with the Student Senate’s consent. The Student Executive Board members and SGA committees represent the student body on several University administrative and academic committees.
The SGA Student Senate consists of members elected by the student body in the SGA general election. The SGA Student Senate is currently comprised of twenty (20) senators from the student body who represent the needs, concerns, issues and problems of their constituent groups to the SGA Senate and the Student Executive Board. The SGA Senate is charged with coordinating student entertainment, activities, events and other programs with the support of the Office of Student Life.
