          • Testimony
            2009-2013, Bachelor's Degree

            Luther College offers Majors, Minors and special courses in 60 Disciplines. I wanted to become a Financial Systems Analyst when I was 14 years old in grade 11. There was a program in South Africa Called Financial Information Systems, but having been a Davis UWC scholar, I later discovered that the program was inferior, but I still wanted to be A Financial Systems Analyst. Luther gave me the opportunity to go for a lot of breadth and a lot of depth as I chose the Accounting Major for issues of Finance, MIS and CompSci minors for issues with systems and lastly Mathematics for Analysis. After My Bachelors degree, I can call myself a Financial Systems Analyst, but It is much easier to change careers as Luther provided me with a lot of depth. I thank the Davis UWC Scholars Program Dearly along with Luther College. They have fulfilled my dreams.

          • Testimony
            1978-1982, Bachelor's Degree

            Luther is a very special place. I describe the Luther experience as one that "sticks to your ribs". Over 30 years later, I still look back and draw on so many of my experiences that help me to set values and to achieve goals based upon my life at Luther.

            1975-1980, B.A. Management

            The type of people the school attracted is to me it's greatest selling point. Thirty-Five years after graduating I am in touch with a number of fellow alums who helped to shape me into the person I am today. I am grateful for the positive influence they had in my life. Luther attracts quality people and many alums are making tremendous contributions in all fields and disciplines of life.
