How has your ENC education prepared you for your career and life beyond college?
Knowledge and skills were important but my favorite parts of education were the classes that taught you how to think and ask the right questions. My work constantly puts me in challenging environments requiring decisions in project implementation, marketing, advocacy, systems development and managing people. Often I find strategic thinking more valuable than my knowledge on fast changing global issues and opportunities.
What advice would you give to a current or future student?
Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in Christian higher education as an undergraduate student. Most of the major life decisions will be made within those four years. Do them in an environment that is conducive to good decisions with no regrets for both career and companions.
