The experience of a student extends beyond the classroom here at Claremont School of Theology. Our groups, events, commitments, and resources reflect the diverse, multicultural and interreligious community that we strive to create.

Students at Claremont, whether on campus or in one of our many hybrid degree programs, have opportunities to connect, grow and be transformed by each other. There are many active student organizations that provide spaces for students to interact on common ground, learn from their differences, and build community.

We have a number of places on campus where students can relax, study and enjoy a number of our social events. The Edgar Community Center and The Lemon Tree Café are spots on campus where students, staff, and faculty interact.

The Office of Student and Community Life also provides resources to students with disabilities and those interested in gaining skills and knowledge during their job search.

The CST campus provides space and time to talk, eat, pray, and play together and support one other. A number of events are planned throughout the year to build community at CST, from the New Student Orientation Program to regular Community Conversations that bring together current students, staff and faculty for meaningful discussion about many topics, particularly the intersections of our identities and issues related to being a diverse, multicultural, and interreligious community.

There are opportunities for face-to-face discussion as well as times where various technologies are utilized to reach out to hybrid-program, commuter, and other students whose scheduling demands keep them off campus during community-building time. Students also participate in the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge opportunities for volunteer service throughout the year in our local area.
