Life in the Seminary is more than just academic training—it is a total life experience that also involves social and spiritual aspects. The Seminary provides for a variety of social, cultural, and physical activities as organized and implemented by the Student Council.
Students must be in good physical health in order to do the required work. A medical-dental clinic located at the basement of the Canteen building is provided for the welfare of residents.
Students are likewise expected to maintain a high standard of ethical and moral conduct. Before a student can be part of the Seminary, he/she is required to sign a Student Covenant meant to build accountability and mutual responsibility and trust.
A significant part of a student’s life on campus is spent on spiritual formation. Various activities are held in the campus in order to foster an atmosphere of worship and fellowship.
The seminary holds worship services twice each week at the school chapel. Attendance is expected of each student since corporate worship is a part of Christian growth.
The seminary also observes special weeks devoted to spiritual development. Two such weeks are the Spiritual Emphasis Week usually held during the second term, and the Lide-Walker Bible Conference, which is held the week before the start of the fourth term in January.
PBTS provides dormitories for students to stay inside the campus for the duration of their studies. Enrolled students have first priority to live in these seminary-provided dorms.
Students are encouraged to be excellent stewards of the dorm facilities entrusted to them. This includes the responsible use of water, which is not always available, and electricity, which can strain the Seminary’s financial resources.
A Dorm Council, composed of the Dean of Students plus one representative from each of the residential buildings and off-campus students, is in place to allow students to provide input into dormitory life. Concerns and queries may be brought to the Dorm Supervisor assigned to the student’s residential hall.
