My time here at Messiah has been invaluable. My learning experience here is ingrained with faith in a way that teaches me to consider my career aspirations in light of the life of Jesus and the principles his life teaches. I know that, without the direction of my professors and their intentional efforts to foster faith in the classroom, I would not have developed into the person I am today. I am so thankful that my department has integrated these faith practices into learning because I now feel better equipped to go into the work force with the skills and assurance to boldly incorporate my faith into practice in appropriate and applicable ways. I am confident that this ability could not have been acquired in such a strong way at many other institutions. Allison Schillinger (HDFS '20)
