“I am so thankful for the blessing of being able to attend Roberts and I’m excited to see what my next 3 years here will hold!”
When I arrived on campus as a prospective student, I instantly knew that Roberts was something special. The atmosphere at the school was warm, welcoming and full of people with open hearts. The great academic programs, exceptional athletic teams and amazing people made me realize that Roberts was the place I wanted to be.
Unfortunately, my father had been laid off from work because of the economy and was forced to start his own construction business. As a result, we did not have a lot of income. All of a sudden my dream of studying biology in the pre-physical therapy program and running on a competitive Division II cross-country team did not seem possible. But when I received my financial aid package, I realized that I had been given enough scholarship money to make my dream a reality! It truly was a gift from God.
I’m now in my second year at Roberts and have already learned so much. I have improved as an athlete, I am a student ambassador and am a teacher assistant for biology. On top of all of this, I have grown in my faith. None of this would've been possible without the scholarships I received. I am so thankful for the blessing of being able to attend Roberts and I’m excited to see what my next 3 years here will hold!
