Making the Move

Each year hundreds of students make the move to Evangel to begin their college experience.

Whether you live 2,000 miles away or 20 miles away, making the move to Springfield is a breeze. With all kinds of major roads that lead you straight into the city and the highly accessible Springfield-Branson National Airport, getting here is the easy part.

The hard part is trying to leave this wonderful community once you’ve been here.

We welcome more than 500 new students every year at Evangel, and more than 400 of those students come to Springfield from other cities, states and countries. So if you’re wondering whether making the move to Springfield is right for you, just remember – you’re not alone.

Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to enjoy your time here, whether you’re making Springfield your home for the next four years or you’re simply coming for a visit. To see what Springfield has to offer, check out our “Things to do in Springfield” page.
