“My classes have been much more than I ever expected, from handling a human brain to intense class discussions, my professors and peers have given me the opportunity to not just learn what is in our text books, but to really experience and grow from what we learn. I have been stretched and challenged to think outside my comfort zone, and as a result I have grown intellectually and in my faith.” –Tabitha McGinness, current Psychology Major.
