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

I am currently writing my dissertation while pursuing a Ph.D. in philosophy. The faculty of the M.A. Philosophy program at Talbot were a supportive, encouraging and wise group of people that helped foster a lot of intellectual growth and preparation for me going into this process. I was really well-prepared and supported going into my Ph.D. studies and had learned a lot beforehand.

What did you appreciate most about your time at Biola?

I most appreciated the experience of exploring new ideas and solving difficult problems in a vibrant community of friends.

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

Biola taught me to to be a follower of Christ by putting Christ before myself in my choices and by putting others before myself in my choices.
