In a world where:
Our culture is highly competitive… We face ethical dilemmas… I’m not sure of my place…
I entered college with no discernable study skills and a very poor academic track record. My high school counselor had suggested that based on my GPA and ACT score that perhaps college would not be the “best fit” for me.
Better study skills… A solid education in a Christian context… Confidence…
At Tabor, I received a very solid business education. But what I most appreciated was an introduction to thinking about business in the context of a Christian worldview. I was challenged to think about the role of profit, about ethics, about character and about leading in the way of Jesus.
Personalized attention from faculty… Character development… Opportunities to lead…
After my first semester, I remember concluding that perhaps I could perform academically at this level. I graduated with high honors, but much more importantly developed a love for learning, which continues to this day. Through different campus activities, I also discovered that I have leadership skills. Although Tabor’s academics were and continue to be strong, at least half of my learning came outside of the classroom.
