Community beyond classroom.


The McPherson College community is intentionally small. Because of that, we get to focus on what’s important. What matters most to us is giving you every opportunity to practice your craft, volunteer your time, and make connections with people that value your individuality. In the midst of that empowering space, you’ll grow into the person you’ve always wanted to become and find out what you’re meant to do.


Find your space.

Lead a club. Play an intramural sport. Do what you care about. Serve the community. Attend events across campus and in town. There’s always something to explore when you take full advantage of what’s around you.

Campus Life

  • Housing

    McPherson College is a residential campus, providing you an easy transition from home to college. You’ll live steps away from your classes, activities, and events in one of our residence halls.

  • Dining

    Living on campus means enjoying the convenience of good food, close to your dorm and whenever you need it. The McPherson Dining Hall is open seven days a week, offering fresh and varied options to fit your desires and cravings.

  • Health & Counseling

    You’ll feel more equipped to take on each day as a student and as an individual if you take care of yourself mentally and physically. In addition to our on-campus Health Clinic, we also offer other health services and personal counseling through McPherson community partners.

  • Academic Support

    Find the support you need to get the most out of your college education. The Royer Center, the Writing Center and our Tutoring Program offer services and instruction free of charge to all students.

  • Miller Library

    Miller Library houses a collection of print materials with special collections, including an archive of periodicals and an automotive technology collection. The library has private and group study spaces and ample computer lab space. We also offer access to numerous online journal databases and participate in an interlibrary loan program.
