Maggie Luke '20

“I love that Covenant has no room for an Academics + Jesus idea. By this, I mean that I have not had a single professor provide a tidy “Christian integration” during a lesson and then teach as if the real world has no room for Christ. Rather, God and his Word permeate our thinking about ideas, our treatment of material, and the (sometimes diverse) conclusions we draw...No place is perfect, but something I love about Covenant is that that desire to put Christ first is real, and people put real effort in to demonstrate that.”
  - Maggie Luke '20

Be Known

“I love the small student-faculty ratio. It is so comforting to walk around campus and see your professors and for them to be able to call you by name. They are eager to assist, and on this small campus, they are genuinely approachable.”
  - Anna Nicklow '20

Avery Drury '20

“My favorite aspect of Covenant College is the classes. My beliefs are constantly being pushed and challenged along with my academic pursuit. The teachers are extremely personable and kind. I struggle to think of one class that I do not feel known by my teacher! The course work is especially challenging, but I honestly do not mind since I love what I am studying.”
  - Avery Drury '20

Be Curious

“...it is exceedingly valuable that we get to walk through unfamiliar and dangerous ideas with wise and thoughtful professors. They themselves have walked through these ideas but have come out even more in love with Jesus and they lead us to do the same.”
  - Brad Assaraf '19
