Maria Forman '14
When Maria Forman ’14 began looking for the right college, she worried the classes might not be demanding enough, and that boredom would lead to poor academic performance. Her first visit to Covenant gave her the impression the coursework here would challenge her and keep her engaged. “That’s definitely turned out to be the case,” says the Baltimore, Maryland, Wilberforce Scholar.
As a participant in Covenant’s cultural diversity program, Maria identifies with Wilberforce’s historic campaign on behalf of a minority, and speaks passionately about working toward equality for people of all cultures. She studies economics with a minor in Spanish, and has no trouble seeing a connection between her major and God’s calling on her life. “I have learned so much about what the Bible has to say about different issues concerning economics, and I have learned how to apply this knowledge to other current events, which will prepare me to make decisions that will honor God through my life.”
