What type of high school did you graduate from?
How have you grown over your years at BJU?
I have really grown in my relationships with others. I have learned that just because someone does or says things differently than I do doesn't mean they are wrong. I just need to take the time to really get to know the person and how they express themselves. (This lesson came mostly through staying in the residence halls.)
What is your favorite college memory?
I thoroughly enjoyed being able to be a part of 2 operas during my junior and senior years. Samson et Dalila and Faust. I was not really an "opera person," but I loved seeing all the behind-the-scenes work and making great friends during our many long rehearsals.
I also loved Gold Rush Daze my sophomore year (an event that happens once every 4 years). It was great being able to get out of classes for a day and go all out with team spirit. Everyone had their faces (and bodies) painted to support their team, and we were able to play games all day. Also in the evening the faculty put on a funny performance, and then we got to go watch amazing fireworks!
What is your favorite meal out of all the food establishments on campus?
One of my favorites was tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches in the dining common.
Any advice for incoming students?
Try to get involved in an outreach ministry as well as on-campus ministries or groups (such as society, instrumental groups, choirs, Mission Advance, etc.). These groups and outreach ministries provide opportunities that will help you grow spiritually and academically, and you may even make some lifelong friends along the way!
If you could visit 1 place, where would it be?
Spain!! I've been there before on a mission trip, but I really want to go back! I love it!
What’s your favorite verse or Scripture passage?
2 Timothy 3:14—“But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them.”
