            1999-2002, BS

            SBU is a great university where you can focus on your studies, gain lifelong friendships and strengthen your faith. The school helped me prioritize my career and life goals, equipped me with the knowledge and skills I needed to be successful and allowed me to be more than just a number during my college experience. The small class sizes and individualized attention given to students makes even the toughest academic challenges manageable.

            When I transferred to SBU from a secular university to begin training for the ministry, I was at a crossroads in my spiritual life. My two years there equipped me for a lifetime of challenges to my world view and life style. The professors all showed an interest in each student that I try to emulate in my life.

The program was focused on teaching useful things and actually preparing us for the work environment. I am thankful for the training I received at SBU.
