Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Intercultural Studies Program

Monica, Degree in International Studies

Name: Monica York
Major: International Studies
Minor: Political Science
Hometown: Jackson, Mississippi
Fact: I dream of being the first woman President of the United States of America.

I chose to come to Belhaven University because... My older brother Jason was attending here, and it is a good private Christian education close to home.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... is a toss-up between my friendship with Sydney Cunningham and my relationship with my advisor Dr. Sara Kimmel. Both are strong women of God who have encouraged me throughout my time at Belhaven. Through my relationship with Dr. Kimmel I have been able to take advantage of opportunities to further my hands-on experience with International Studies.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I will have a Biblical education as my foundation for law school and my career path -wherever God sends me.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Worthwhile. My time at Belhaven is like no other experience in my life. I have learned a great number of things that will aid in my future.
