Why I came to Taylor:
I believe in a Christian liberal arts education, and I would love to be involved in how God is preparing young people to bring their skills and passions to the work of the Kingdom.
Advice to incoming students:
Allow your communities to be broad as well as deep (make friends with people very different from yourself), find a place in your 4-year plan for a public health course.
Gardening and cooking (and eating), fishing, birding, traveling, being with people.
