Tabor College is decidedly Christian; must I be Christian to attend?

While we make no apologies for our Christian commitment, we do not require an individual be a professing Christian to attend. Students are exposed to Christianity through their coursework, our community and mandatory chapel attendance. We ask students, who attend Tabor College, to sign a community lifestyle covenant. The standards contained in our covenant include: abstaining from sexual immorality, tobacco and alcohol.
