Major: Chemistry

Why I got involved with campus ministries: I grew up going to church regularly with my family each Sunday. When I moved away to college, I didn’t have the encouragement of my family to rely on to get me to go to church and pray regularly. I realized it was only me that could determine how much my faith would impact my day-to-day life. Campus ministries helped me and continues to help me grow in my walk with Christ.
