Together We Rise

Elevating the Student Experience

Mars Hill University is embarking on a campaign to create a modern new space that will inspire moments of connection and reflection. It will be a place where friends meet and work and relax and experience life together, creating lasting memories at Mars Hill University.


Driven by our Strategic Plan

Enrollment for Success

The new Campus Center and broader physical campus improvements are a strong and vital part of our student recruitment strategy, helping Mars Hill make a more positive impression on visitors.

Engaging Student Experience

The new Center will serve as a hub of student activity and engagement as a place of fellowship, study, collaboration, relaxation, and spiritual renewal.

Expanding University Resources

The Center will include an upgraded fitness center, new food services, a new admissions welcome center, a large new event space, upgraded shared meeting space, dedicated spaces for multiple campus organizations and programs, and so much more.

New Campus Center and reinvigoration of the physical campus

As you hear from President Tony Floyd frequently: Mars Hill University is rising. There’s an air of excitement and growth, a sense of energy and momentum that we want to accelerate even further. A range of physical campus enhancements are already under way that will improve an already beautiful campus. But we’re not stopping there.

A new Campus Center, designed through the lens of the student experience, will serve as the hub of our vision. A stunning, modern facility committed to spiritual and experiential nourishment for students through fitness programs, Campus Ministry, Student Life, and a range of gathering places for work, meetings, or just spending time together.

Further reshaping of our campus will include beautiful new terraces, updated landscaping, patios and plazas linked by attractive brick walkways connecting the historic parts of campus to the new. These efforts will achieve more than just improving the view. They will improve the overall experience at Mars Hill in a way that will drive increased student recruitment and retention and make even the everyday experience of being on campus more positive and pleasant for students, faculty, staff and visitors alike.

Campaign goals and opportunities to participate

This capital campaign to deeply renovate our campus has set an ambitious goal of raising $20M. This will only be possible with the ongoing support of supporters like you who share our vision for Mars Hill University. Support can come in many forms, including:

  • Gifts of real estate

Commitments may be made over a two- or three-year period.
