School Notes:

  • Tabor College offers a wide selection of courses in the liberal arts and in professional and career preparation. The General Education component of the degree requirements assures that all graduates receive a firm grounding in the liberal arts, whether they are preparing for a professional career upon graduation or are planning toward graduate study.
  • A Liberal Arts curriculum is composed of three major segments: general education courses, major courses, and electives. Our General Education program is defined as those courses that the faculty of Tabor College considers to be essential for all students to take. It includes the courses that we believe are central to a Christian liberal arts education. Students who successfully complete a degree at Tabor, including the general education curriculum, are exposed to a number of issues and skills that represent important competencies for productive living as a citizen of society and the Kingdom of God. These include the following: reasoning and communication, historical and world perspective, and Christian maturity and understanding.
  • Residence life, student activities, convocations and worship services, personal and career counseling, student organizations, and leadership and service opportunities are provided to help students grow into the person they are becoming. Regardless of the opportunities you choose, hands-on ministries are abundant. Students impact the world even before they graduate. At Tabor College, the avenues for involvement are many and all in the context of a Christian environment.
  • Our main campus is situated in Hillsboro, Kansas, a town of approximately 3500 residents. Hillsboro's central Kansas location offers many opportunities for recreational fun. Nearby cities include Newton, McPherson, Salina, and Emporia. And a little further down the road, about an hour's drive south, is Wichita, the largest city in Kansas. Wichita offers many shopping centers, professional sports teams, museums, cultural events, and plenty of restaurants.
