I love Evangel University! I was in the 7th grade when I first heard about Evangel, and I was determined to find my way here from Salt Lake City, Utah. My perseverance paid off, and my parents drove me across the country to become an Evangel student in 1991. Attending Evangel was the best decision I ever made. My experiences and education as a student were priceless, and I was well-prepared to work in my field. It was a privilege to return to Evangel as a staff member in 2008 and join a team helping students like me find their way to Evangel.
