Students are encouraged to form new (and to participate in existing) Special Interest Student Groups on the Seminary campus. In the past, groups have formed around a focused area of interest (Baptist Theology Group; Creation Care Group; Palmer Seminary Soccer Team; etc.), denominational identification (United Methodist Student Fellowship, etc.), and cultural or other commonalities (International Student Fellowship; Women in Ministry Fellowship; etc.).

Special Interest Student Groups provide the opportunity for collegial fellowship and support, and for the pursuit of growth and learning in focused areas. Special Interest Student Groups must submit budget needs each term to the Student Assembly (SA) in order to receive SA funds for their activities.
