When you come to Appalachian Bible College, it might be the first time you're living away from the loving care of your family. We understand. That's why we provide numerous opportunities to build friendships with other students. From structured events like an Ultimate Frisbee competition organized by Student Council, to a spontaneous activity like a game of pool in the Alumni Lounge, you'll have many moments of fun and laughter at ABC.


Sports provide a good diversion from the rigors of study. In addition, athletics provide a splendid opportunity for Christian testimony before opponents and among teammates.

Social Events

The school year starts with outdoor activities like the big swing, zipline and sand volleyball in a picnic setting. To demonstrate the school motto of servanthood, faculty and staff serve 'breakfast in bed' on Study Day. We also have a special staff-served supper with games and prizes.

Other social events include a fall festival celebration, Christmas banquet, senior banquet, roller-skating and midnight breakfast. Plus, the residence halls, local churches and other area organizations sponsor entertainment for your enjoyment.
