Advice to incoming students

Know that you are called. Somewhere, to something, to be someone specific. Your identity is in Christ first and foremost, and the One who calls you is your Creator and Savior. Whether you come into college with a five-point plan or no plan at all, this life stage is one of inescapable growth, change, and development. Wherever you live on campus, whatever major you choose, whatever friends you make or clubs you join, remember beyond and before all else that you are the Lord’s, and your identity is in Christ, to the glory and praise of God. Hold onto that truth, and delight yourself in what He has in store. Following God is the greatest adventure of life because it is the very essence of true life itself. “…I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:1-2

Why I Came to Taylor

Currently a student myself, I was drawn to Taylor because of the school’s intentionality of integrating faith and learning. Not only does Taylor offer an academically rigorous experience, but the community offered a “home away from home” that I had never experienced so immediately anywhere else. Upon meeting people from Taylor and setting foot on campus, I instantly knew it to be a place where I could learn much more about the Lord, His people, the world at large, and even myself. It is simultaneously a group of passionate scholars and a warm, welcoming family.
