Liz Daley '23

"My time at Covenant has taught me that no Christian community is perfect, but if there is care and love and a desire to push one another towards something higher, then you have found something wonderful. My prayer is that I won’t have to settle for anything less in the future."

Edoardo Santi '22

"I wanted to find a community of people who seek Jesus, and halfway through my freshman year, God gave me a family of believers, "The Five Points" hall, who accepted me into their family and showed me Christian love."

Zoe Kiratzis '21

"Covenant encourages students to get involved in churches and ministries outside the school. Since coming here, I’ve begun to grasp the uniqueness of church community and better identify both attributes I value in a church and how I can best serve."

Baylie Sims '22

"I love the small faculty to student ratio! The professors at Covenant genuinely care about us as students, but they also want to get to know us. Many professors like to have classes over for a home-cooked meal or even go on a hike with students. It is very encouraging to see your professors on campus and they know your name."

Cameron Cortman '22

"The community at Covenant is so unlike any other place I have been. Having people in my life who constantly challenge and push me to become better in every area of life is something that I didn't know I needed until I got here. Whether it is the coaches, professors, or fellow students, everyone fulfills a commitment to calling each other to a higher standard, and for that, I am genuinely grateful."

Viona Okwii Brown '22

"Through classes at Covenant, I have learned that my life as a student and professional is interwoven with my Christian beliefs. The two are not mutually exclusive. As I plan towards life after college, I am assured that my professional life will be an avenue where Christ shines through me."

Emily Braswell '22

"Financial aid was a huge part of my decision of whether or not to attend. I knew I would not be able to come if I did not receive financial aid, and I was really impressed with Covenant’s Financial Aid Office and how they worked with me and my admissions counselor through the whole process."

Avery Patz '22

"I love hall life here! I’ve stayed on one hall (Harambe!, woot woot) for three years so far and have loved doing life with these ladies. Late night shenanigans, dance parties, prayer and praise, and outdoor study sessions are frequent, and these girls are the absolute best company for it!"

Benaiah Woodrow '22

"I have had the privilege to work in such positions as Student Ministry Coordinator and Multicultural Leader where you receive discipleship from your supervisor and fellow leaders and in turn are able to disciple others throughout the college. This discipleship is a working together to draw our relationships closer to God and one another."

Samara Barbee '22

"I chose Covenant because of the people. I first saw Covenant’s campus when I came to a summer camp as a middle schooler, but it wasn’t until I visited as a junior in high school that I realized that what made the campus so alive is the students’ deep connections with one another. Also, I wanted to go to a school that would challenge me academically and spiritually, and Covenant has done just that."
