"I get to study several disciplines rather than just one. I love the idea of being a “renaissance” man and I believe IDS (interdisciplinary studies) delivers exactly that. Learning to see the world through several different lenses like sociology, history, and philosophy has given me the opportunity to approach problems comprehensively and integrate Jesus Christ as the centerpiece, in whom I mirror my knowledge after. Furthermore, I love learning under Dr. Dennison aka Dr. D! "

"I have enjoyed learning how children process and learn material through my education courses, learning Spanish and developing that skill through my Spanish courses, and how to serve others well through the missions and community development classes. "

"I love the diversity that I get with my major. Having three concentrations allows me to pull knowledge from broader areas of study to be more versatile. I love how well my concentrations fit together to fit my desire to work in America in the kitchens of non-profits. My major gives me the ability to take my passions and put them together in an integrated way."
