Favorite place on campus
The Blink. It’s a hangout spot with friends, comfy seats, good views, a giant chess board, artificial trees, buffalo chicken wraps, and it satisfies late-night hunger cravings. You can’t beat it.

 

Honors received at Covenant
Athletic honor roll

 

Why did you choose Covenant?
It sounds cheesy, but I knew Covenant was the place I was called to be from the moment I stepped on campus. Its unique integration of academics and athletics with my faith made it an easy choice.

 

How is Covenant unique?
The vast diversity in student personalities and interests, connected by a common faith.

 

What has been your favorite experience at Covenant?
Playing in the atmosphere of a Covenant Scots home basketball game. There’s no feeling like it.

 

What is your favorite class so far?
Introduction to the Old Testament with Dr. Scott Jones.

 

What made that class your favorite?
I feel like there are classes that teach you material and classes that teach you how to think. This was one of the first Bible classes that taught me to think about scripture, not just know it. Oh, and Dr. Jones is the man.

 

What are some things you enjoy about your major(s)?
Legitimately feeling like I’ve learned something new every day. The relationships built with other students and teachers, and how faith, knowledge, and critical thinking are all intertwined.

 

What person at Covenant has had the greatest impact on you, and why?
Two people. Coach Taylor, for recruiting me, caring for me, and developing me on the court and in my spiritual life, and Dr. Curtis Stern for teaching all my engineering classes and taking a genuine interest in me.

 

What’s your favorite part of the day at Covenant?
Eating dinner at the “Hoop Table” in the Great Hall with my teammates after a long day of class and practice.

 

What are your post-graduation plans?
Complete my degree in civil engineering at Georgia Tech.

 

How is Covenant equipping you for the future?
It is giving me a strong biblical foundation in my faith, while teaching me the skills I need to succeed in my area of study.
