Sorry for being completely ignorant here but why is this important? Not saying that it isn't but I honestly don't know pretty much anything of the SVOTS.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

It is one of the major Orthodox seminaries in the US. The recordings contain lectures from people such as Fr. Alexander Schmemann and Fr. Thomas Hopko.

If I recall past posts correctly, Mor Ephrem got a degree from SVOTS.

Hooray!
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

I registered. Will probably listen to the ones they have by Sr. Nonna Verna Harrison and Jaroslav Pelikan. Would be sweet if some by Fr. Georges Florovsky eventually ended up there.
