Imagine: The campaign for vanguard university

Student Center

In 1920, Hulda and Harold Needham were called to start a school to educate Spirit-empowered, Christ-centered leaders. Then a small Bible college devoted to sending missionaries out to serve throughout the world, Vanguard is now the first four-year university in Orange County, educating undergraduate and graduate students. Though its name and location have changed over its nearly century-long existence, Vanguard remains committed to equipping and preparing Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered young men and women to find their true calling, serve God and to change the world.

The student center will be a forum for creating and sharing God stories, encouraging one another, exploring their career and academic goals and expanding their faith. Also an extension of the classroom, the new student center will support a relational and unfettered approach to the learning environment of Vanguard. Alumni visiting campus will be welcomed home at the student center, where they can engage with current students, reconnect with an influential professor or reunite with a former classmate.
