I chose to come to Belhaven because... this is where the Lord led me. I visited the Belhaven campus and saw that it was a school that was focused on Christ. I recognized a strong sense of community among students, and came to believe that this was a place that prepared young people for serving people and glorifying Jesus in whatever field they chose.

We didn't meet until the end of our sophomore year, and we've now been friends and roommates for two years.
