Favorite thing about Northwestern: The people, hands down. I built some amazing friendships and had the opportunity to learn from an amazing staff. Professors got to know me by name and took an interest in my life beyond academics. I am truly thankful for the people God used in my life at Northwestern as he continues to shape me into the man he created me to be.

College search advice: Try not to stress, because this is an exciting time! I would recommend, for whatever school you are applying to, that you visit the campus and talk with professors and students. Eat in the cafeteria, sit in a class, spend a night in the dorm; get the full experience. And remember: God has a place for you, so don’t forget to trust him in the process.
