School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):

Founded in 1937 as Atlanta Christian College, Point University is a private, four-year liberal arts institution preparing students to influence culture for Christ in all spheres of life -- through business, entertainment and the arts, education, government, the Church and the nonprofit world.

Point University offers degree programs in areas of study ranging from biblical studies to business. The Access program offers associate and bachelor's degrees for adult learners, as well as online courses. The University provides a broad, comprehensive curriculum designed to prepare students for their chosen professions. Just as importantly, the University equips students to meld their faith into all aspects of their life- personal and professional- so they see life and mission as one and the same.

The University's main campus relocated to West Point, Ga., just an hour away from Atlanta near the Alabama border, in the fall of 2012. The University's historic campus in East Point, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta, continues to operate as a site for Access, the adult degree program. The University has three additional off-site locations, as well: Savannah and Peachtree City, Ga., and Birmingham, Ala.

Point University's students are part of a growing, vibrant community of believers who support and encourage one another, representing a variety of Christian faith backgrounds. At Point, professors and students know each other by name and build relationships that last a lifetime. Students are encouraged to serve others, whether through a mission trip across the globe or an urban service project. Students are also encouraged to get involved on campus, where activities include a variety of social, service, athletic and performing arts organizations. Point's athletic teams compete at the NAIA level, fielding teams in baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross country, football, men's and women's soccer, softball, volleyball, cheerleading and lacrosse.

Point University graduates are working and serving in 43 states, three U.S. territories, more than 15 foreign countries, and with numerous campus ministries, Christian camps and churches. Whether called to full-time ministry or another career, Point University graduates are going into all the world to live and love and serve in a way that makes Jesus, the Gospel and the cross visible to a world in need.
