Share a bit about your personal testimony of faith.
I grew up in a Christian household, but it wasn’t until just before I came here to Roberts that I recommitted myself to the Lord. It was at a church camp meeting over the summer, and there was an altar call and I just felt the spirit of the Lord pulling me in to recommit myself to Him.
How has Roberts (or the division) strengthened your faith journey?
Roberts has given me opportunities to serve and interact with other Christians from different backgrounds. As a result, I’ve broadened my worldview. I’ve also gotten the chance to serve in a variety of ministries such as drama, teaching, and street ministry.
What are the pros for attending Roberts, especially as a math or science major?
Attending Roberts as a science major allows for the opportunity to see how faith and science interact with one another. There are a number of controversial issues between the two, and it is very helpful to look at how they can coexist.
What is your major and what are looking to do in the future?
I am enrolled in the 3-2 engineering program here at Roberts. I’ll be finishing my third year here at Roberts, and next year I begin my two years at RPI to work on my biomedical engineering degree. By the time I graduate in 2012, I’ll have a physics degree from Roberts and an engineering degree from RPI.
What are the top 3 things you like best about the division?
My favorite thing has got to be the faculty just because they’re all so awesome. The second has got to be the Faith and Science Luncheons. I mean, come on, free food and we get to talk about science and faith? That’s a pretty good deal! Third, I’d have to say the various events the Math and Science Club puts together like bowling or marching in the Homecoming parade.
How have you benefited from the faculty in the division?
The faculty has been like a family to me. They’ve been willing to answer all my questions. It’s been a real joy working with them both as a student and TA.
