Biola was the perfect environment for what a person should do during their college years: discover and choose who they are.

How did your program at Biola prepare you for your career?

Biola gave me authority. They taught me marketing theories as well as reasoning and research to back up those theories. I was pushed to not only learn my emphasis but also try multiple other forms of media.

What did you appreciate most about your time at Biola?

I appreciated professors that cared for me as a person and a pressure free environment where I could make educated decisions. I also appreciated the quality friends I made.

How did Biola equip you to be a more faithful follower of Jesus Christ?

Biola was the perfect environment for what a person should do during their college years: discover and choose who they are. Biola educated me about beliefs while giving me the room to make an educated choice about what I believe and how that integrates into my career. It was unbiased and safe.

What advice would you give to students considering your degree program?

Learn all of it! Not just your emphasis. Take advantage of the experience you can get in all forms of media. The market is changing and that is the key.
