Why I came to Taylor:

I came to TU because of the high quality of the educators and equipment which I saw at Taylor. I had been to enough other places that I knew too many Christian colleges did not match their statements about having qualified, well-equipped science programs and I was blown away by how great the people and facilities were here.

Advice to incoming students:

The main thing is to keep your focus on the fact that your job for the next four years is to be a student. Like any other job, how well you do will depend upon how well you follow through on your intentions and plans. But, in this case, YOU and the Lord are who you are working for, not someone who is paying you.
