"Learning hands-on through labs is probably my favorite part of being a science major. I like to see for myself how things work and doing dissections or running chemical reactions is a great way to reinforce what I've been learning. The professors here also do a great job of having labs line up with the material we cover in class, so it gives me more experience and a second way to approach the lecture content. "

"Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAP) with Dr. Morris. Learning about how our bodies work was fascinating and gave me a completely new perspective into the nature of our Creator. Studying for the class became a sort of worship as I acquired a greater sense of God’s creativity and attention to detail. You gain a deeper understanding of God’s grace when you realize just how complex the body is. "
