Favorite place on campus
My favorite place on campus has to be the billiard table in the recreation room of Founder's Hall, I have spent many fun and relaxing evenings down there with friends.

 

Why did you choose Covenant?
I wanted to study my major and have Christ fully incorporated in my classes. Being provided with scholarships helped my decision as well.

 

How is Covenant unique?
Covenant is unique because it truly does follow its motto: in all things Christ preeminent. And it’s on top of a mountain!

 

What has been your favorite experience at Covenant?
It has to be listening to the Covenant pipes and drums at Convocation, standing directly behind them filled me with elation.

 

What is your favorite class, and why?
“Introduction to the New Testament” with Dr. Lambert and Dr. Dryden is my favorite class of this semester, mainly because I am learning much more about the nuances of scripture. Dr. Lambert is also extremely knowledgeable about Biblical customs, which I find fascinating.

 

What person at Covenant has had the greatest impact on you, and why?
The upperclassmen on my hall have had a great impact on me, as have several close friends.

 

What’s your favorite part of the day at Covenant?
The evening is my favorite part of the day at Covenant. Everything winds down and we all relax and enjoy the fellowship of one another. We also study and sometimes watch the sunset, since Borderlands has some of the best seats in the house for the latter activity

 

What are your post-graduation plans?
I plan on becoming an engineer and hope to start my own business. Besides that, I am not completely certain. I may build my own house.

 

How is Covenant equipping you for the future?
Well, besides the obvious major and minor, working in Chartwell’s and living in a dorm both prepared me to work with people in the workplace and to get tasks done in a timely manner. I have also been strengthened in my faith and convictions.
