Every college or university education is centered on something: a philosophy, a worldview, a set of core beliefs. Choosing a school that has the right things at the center will make all the difference.
Learning psychology from a biblical perspective is especially important to me because each of us is created in the image of God. I am looking forward to studying the complexity of the human mind, which is fearfully and wonderfully made by our Creator.
Through intercollegiate athletics at Cairn, I have been stretched to exemplify Christ on the court, and the community atmosphere has been a daily encouragement.
As a student at Cairn, I’ve become a part of a community of professors and students who are seeking to live godly lives. I am constantly being encouraged to strive for excellence and live a life of integrity.
Having a biblically integrated worldview will not only give me a work ethic that employers are looking for, but more importantly will give me the desire to live intentionally with every person I come in contact with.
Whether I’m studying sociology, ancient art, mathematics, or philosophy, the person of Jesus Christ seems to always be at the center of the conversation. Probably as many substantial conversations around the lunch table find their roots in Core Curriculum classes as in theology classes. I always enjoy hearing how my friends’ classes have sparked some spiritual fire in them.
Cairn’s commitment to integrate teaching and experiences has helped me realize the necessity of keeping one’s life from being compartmentalized. The world needs men and women in the workplace who are not only professionally competent, but also have a heart for God. As I become more conformed to the image of Christ, I know I’m also more capable of engaging in intentional and productive service to Christ in the church, society, and the world.
The character of the professors definitely has a deep influence on me, molding my mind to resemble the mind of Christ. I glean from them week to week, not only through their Christ-centered view of the subjects they are teaching, but also through the character shown in how they interact with me as a student.
I used to be afraid of questioning, but my education at Cairn has shown me the importance of confronting the questions that arise as I consider how my faith relates to my understanding of the world. In this worldview focus, I have found a freedom to examine ideas without fear or defensiveness.
