They have always been my first choice. I wouldn't imagine going anywhere else. The students and faculty are simply amazing. They are not only a place with academic value but, they also have the spiritual aspect. You can really depend on the staff when you need to.

A great place to learn and grow in the Lord Jesus Christ. A great place to learn more about yourself and with many different cultures. The professors are very encouraging to reach beyond limits, so you will become a critical thinker. To become wise leaders in your community and government.
