Through the Honors Program at Southern Wesleyan I had the opportunity to conduct a self-directed research project with one-on-one guidance from a faculty member. I was able to publish a research article and gain experience with public speaking by presenting my research numerous times to professional audiences. I didn’t realize how much of a privilege it was to have that opportunity in undergrad until I got to medical school and found out that most of my classmates with that sort of research experience were only able to do so in a master’s or Ph.D. program.

I chose SWU because they are not only student focused, but Christ focused. It is not only a place where I learn the proper ways to teach children reading, writing, and arithmetic. It's also a place where I continue to learn to surrender my heart to Jesus, all the way. My favorite thing about SWU is the emphasis on prayer. The spiritual life aspect has taught me to be ALL IN for God, and for that I am thankful.
