“After arriving and becoming a part of the community, I fell in love and couldn’t imagine leaving. The spirit of the community, the classes, the people, and campus itself became my home away from home. My college experience continues to encourage me and push to grow and flourish academically and spiritually in ways that cannot be found anywhere else.”
