“As a liberal arts institution, Covenant is instructing every part of my mind. There are quite a few core courses that are required, and balancing those courses with a major and two minors can be challenging. But all those requirements are preparing me to be an educated, thoughtful member of society who is knowledgeable on matters of faith and culture. I’m learning what it means to truly love others and give every area of my life completely to my King.”
