While I enjoyed the rigor and resources of [a secular school], something was missing. As I spent more time on campus, I realized that my relationship with God was suffering and I was focused on my own selfish goals. My heart was yearning for a deeper, faith-based community. I knew that I was not in the right place, and I felt God calling me to do something radical - to give up the scholarships and the prestigious program and to transfer somewhere where my faith could be bolstered.
In everything from the hands-on marketing and business experiences to a professor getting me my first internship, UNW felt like a trial run for the real world - with a safety net. Many of our professors went off book and instead had us working through projects and situations that mimicked what it has actually been like to work in marketing.
UNW was a catalyst for my academic and spiritual development. The classroom experience simply provides a framework for the relationships you develop outside the classroom, which leads to discussions of challenging ideas, prayer, and sometimes just laughter. I have integrated this into my career by operating everyday with purpose and humility—seeking excellence and the continued development of myself and my team.
