Why I love teaching at Taylor:

Taylor University is a great place to be. I am so thankful for this opportunity to be a faculty member here. Let me share with you a few reasons that I love teaching here at Taylor. The up-to-date and awesome facilities/resources at Taylor enhance teaching and learning. Taylor students are very motivated and hardworking. My colleagues are wonderful and caring. Chapels and other activities in this Christ centered institution help me grow closer to God. This is the best place to be!

Advice to incoming students:

  • Be engaged in all the classes and stay connected with the activities on campus
  • Make friends with your fellow classmates and others in your dorm
  • Don’t hesitate to ask questions in and outside class time and go your professors’ office hours
  • Attend chapels and other activities


Spending time with friends and families, trying new recipes with friends for fun, getting a lot of ideas from Pinterest, watching movies
