Advice to Incoming Students

Take full advantage of the opportunities a Taylor education provides. Classes in your major, classes outside of your major, and extracurricular activities will teach you about yourself, others, and God. Never stop asking questions.

Why I Enjoy Teaching at Taylor

I came to Taylor so that I could be in an environment where the pursuit of knowledge was emphasized as part of the larger pursuit of the Kingdom. I have found this to be quite true and quite evident. Taylor students, staff, and faculty are all genuinely committed to pursuing and advancing the Kingdom.


I enjoy Reading, running, following sports, listening to Supreme Court oral arguments, and spending time with my family.
