    Dr. Farnham invited me to his house for Easter lunch when I had to work on campus over Easter break.

  • Jessa Williams says:

    Dr. Raluca Snyder encouraging me not only in my career path but in all the family things I was going through. She made it a point to always pray for our needs. She exemplifies kindness and more of Christ’s character as a professor and mentor!

  • Ruth (Ackroyd) Grove, ‘76 says:

    My professors always helped. One summer I was trying to teach myself Greek. Dr. Lease and Dr. Figart were perfectly willing to check the exercises I had done and help to explain what I didn’t understand even though it was their time off and I wasn’t even in a class.
