“The strong community, and fellowship in the Lord in an academic environment certainly impacted my decision towards the college. Covenant also seemed to be more interested in the individual than the financial aspect, which sets them apart from other colleges. Students are treated as people and not numbers. Not to mention it’s like living in a castle in the clouds, who wouldn’t want that?”

Sarah Ocando, Associate Dean of Students and Director of the Multicultural Program, encouraged the Covenant community to remember that unity is one of Christ's primary goals for his church.
