“My time at SWU was the foundational step of education I needed to take to realize that my career calling was completely across the country, in Los Angeles, CA, and eventually, my goal is to work/minister all over the world! The professors, students, and general community helped me grow into the person I am today, and am still becoming, and I will never forget my precious bit of time spent there.”
