Biology student

Elizabeth Coats '16 describes the excitement of seeing classroom research in genetics applied in the laboratory.

"Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAP) with Dr. Morris. Learning about how our bodies work was fascinating and gave me a completely new perspective into the nature of our Creator. Studying for the class became a sort of worship as I acquired a greater sense of God’s creativity and attention to detail. You gain a deeper understanding of God’s grace when you realize just how complex the body is. "
