He has also served as an Orientation student staff member and participated in Summer of Service and Spring Service short-term mission programs.

Junior Scholar
I’ve been fortunate to serve two years as a Junior Scholar for my faculty adviser. This experience has allowed me to put into practice many of the things I am learning in my classes. I spend a lot of time working with my adviser and witnessing the research process firsthand. It has given me a good sense of what economics methodology is like when applied to real-life situations.

Dorm leader
I’m serving as a resident assistant in Colenbrander Hall. Residence life is an amazing part of the Northwestern College experience, and I love getting to know the guys in my dorm and making unforgettable memories with them.

Intentional community
Northwestern does a great job of providing a community where you can meet incredible people and grow and learn together. From professors who take the time to meet and help you in their offices to other students who become close friends, Northwestern’s intentional focus on community is something I have experienced and deeply valued during my time here.

Absolute advantage
In high school, I was always drawn to the humanities, but I also had a desire to work in the financial industry. I found that economics was a mix of those two areas. It allows me to study the financial world from a more abstract perspective while also providing me with useful business skills. Studying economics has caused me to view situations and issues in a new light. It’s made me reevaluate and rethink old viewpoints to align both with my faith and my newfound knowledge. It’s also helped shine a light on weaker aspects of my faith, both challenging and strengthening my relationship with Christ.

Caring in common
The people at Northwestern have one thing in common: They care. Both professors and residence life staff take the time to get to know me personally and help me grow not just academically but also as a person. They go beyond their job descriptions to ensure that I experience both great community and learning.
