Advice to Incoming Students

Use your time wisely. Schedule as many of your classes as you can in the morning. Study in the afternoon. Get involved with Stewards of Creation. Make friendships with the other students in your discipline. Summer practicums are an opportunity – take advantage of them. Above all – the work that you do now and in the future is for the Creator!

Why I Enjoy Teaching at Taylor

I enjoy teaching at Taylor because I enjoy the subject matter that I teach and the students. At Taylor, it has been very gratifying to see students become more competent in their chosen field and grow spiritually. I feel that my contribution to the Earth and Environmental Science Department has been significant, and students have benefited from my interactions with them.
