The other students at Milligan have really had an impact on me. There's an openness. The age difference between freshmen and seniors doesn't matter. I've got senior guys who are like brothers and mentors -- spiritually and academically. Even those who have already graduated -- I keep in touch with them and they help keep me accountable. There's a variety of opportunities and ways at Milligan to get to know God and people.
I'm a Public Leadership & Service major and I want to work with kids at a Christian camp or an inner city program in a bigger city. I've always loved service. I'm from a small town so I'm excited about different experiences and opportunities. At Milligan, I've had lots of opportunities to work with different organizations in the community. They want us to see what there is to do out there and not just on the Milligan campus. They've encouraged me to get out there and do other things.
I met Dr. Abner at the Youth in Ministry summer teen conference the summer before my senior year of high school. He was really encouraging. He's been my professor and he and his family have also become my friends. He continues to push me to grow and strengthen my faith. I've also really liked getting to know Tony Jones (Campus Activities Director). He's so involved with the students and it's nice to be able to discuss classes and committee work. He listens and answers a lot of my questions. Forming mentoring relationships with the faculty and staff at Milligan is really cool.
