“The professors are super kind and caring and willing to make accommodations if you have problems or struggles. They’re willing to meet with you one-on-one outside of class. Just knowing that the professors care about you as a person and not just only as a student really makes an impact.” - Chris LaValley

“The highlights here have been the community created through staff, faculty, and students as well as the opportunity to apply our faith in the variety of classroom environments and not just the Bible and Theology classes.” - Amanda Jones

“Here I see how everyone has these imperfect lives despite following Jesus. I think that’s helped me keep my faith and stay strong when I really needed it. I’m convinced I’ve met a few people here I wouldn’t have found anywhere else in the world. I met the people who are my best friends now when I moved on campus and that made a world of a difference.” - Azaria Coakley
