Student Profile: Isaiah Day ’13

Covenant College Student Profile Isaiah Day

Class Year:


Annandale, Virginia






JV basketball, Diversity Club, piano lessons


Favorite place on campus
The gym. It’s not the best in the world, but it’s a familiar and a weird place to spend quality time with some of my best friends. I also use it as a place to just get away from the stresses of other parts of my college experience.


How is Covenant unique?
The familial environment around the halls is just amazing! Just living so close to other guys and having a very open atmosphere allows people to get to know each other really quickly and develop great, lasting friendships.


What has been your favorite experience at Covenant?
My first home game as part of the basketball team. We lost the game, but the energy and support that we got from everyone who came out to watch was Covenant in a nutshell. I love how excited everybody gets about supporting their friends and the school!


What is your favorite class?
My favorite class so far has been Intro to Old Testament with Dr. Jones. Some people say that professors don’t take their intro classes very seriously, but I was very challenged by his lectures and impressed with his knowledge and how relevant the Old Testament is to the Church today!


What person at Covenant has had the greatest impact on you?
Gareth Jones really connected with me at the beginning of my time here at Covenant, and brought me into a lot of the hall life and diversity activities that he leads. My basketball coaches, Coaches Taylor and Herbert, have also greatly changed the way I look at athletics. The Covenant team is just as much about building each other up as people as it is about winning, and both of these great men really embody that example of living like Christ and serving the people around them.


What’s your favorite part of the day at Covenant?
Right after I get out of my last class, because I know there are about twenty different things I can go do! The campus is just so open for any activity that I’m not always sure what I’ll be doing in the afternoon, but it’s always enjoyable.


What are your post-graduation plans?
My future is very uncertain right now, but it depends on the avenues God opens up. Ideally, I’d love to work with people one-on-one in a counseling type of job, but I might really end up anywhere, which I’m okay with. Being at Covenant has really broadened my horizons and helped me see that getting a job isn’t our greatest purpose in life.


How is Covenant equipping you for the future?
I really took to heart what we learned in Christian Mind about "All truth is God’s truth." I realized that it’s not just sticking God into every lecture somewhere, but that all learning is part of worshiping God. That has really changed how I look at my studies and my work all around campus. I’ll definitely apply the idea of worshiping God through all my activities and work to all my life after school.
