Why I love teaching at Taylor:
My years at Taylor have been blessed by all the students I have had the privilege of interacting with, both in and outside of the classroom. I continue to be amazed at the places God takes them and the classrooms around the world in which they have had the opportunity to teach and inspire the next generation of artists.
Advice to incoming students:
Leaving home and moving to a university campus is an exciting, and at the same time, a bit of an overwhelming experience. Everything is new and different from the familiar faces and places that have been your life for 18 years. Allow yourself time to adjust to your new surroundings, be patient with yourself and others. Make a genuine effort to participate in activities and get involved with your wing and the new people you meet. Be diligent in your studies and intentional about your time and how you spend it. Spend time with the Lord daily and ask Him to direct your paths!
