Advice to Incoming Students

Be open to new experiences but don’t get over-extended. Have boundaries.

Your learning belongs to you: make it happen and transfer everything you learn to other contexts!

Why I Enjoy Teaching at Taylor

First, our students are part of what makes Taylor so great. Second, Cornelius Plantinga posited, “learning is. . . a spiritual calling: properly done, it attaches us to God,” – I get to facilitate that here!
