Favorite Calvin memory

Attending Calvin’s MidKnight Madness event with my friends each year. We all had so much fun dressing up in our Halloween costumes, celebrating the start of basketball season, and cheering on friends who were on the team!

How did your faith grow at Calvin?

At Calvin, I was surrounded by friends, professors, and mentors who continually encouraged me in my faith. Starting a new chapter of my life brought new challenges, experiences, and difficult choices. Being surrounded by a community that is committed to the Christian faith and to my personal spiritual growth enabled me to face these challenges with confidence and complete trust in God's plan for my life.

What part of Calvin’s mission resonates with you, and why?

I love that Calvin's mission aims to equip students to "live wholeheartedly". Calvin values a Christian life that is full of passion, commitment to our faith, sincerity, and purpose. This may look different for each person on campus, but together we get to live with the joy of knowing that we belong to and are unconditionally loved by the Lord!
