I appreciated the way professors at Northwestern modeled Christ. They instilled in me a more robustly biblical worldview. UNW changed the way I see the world for the better. College is such a transitional time for young people. It is no understatement to say that the Biblical and Theological Studies Department has had a large part in making me who I am today. I thank God for my time there.
