Write a personal statement

As you complete the application, you will be asked to write a thoughtful response to the following prompt:

Why are you interested in attending a faith-based university that affirms and integrates Christian beliefs?

Tips from Our Counselors

A thoughtfully crafted statement typically fits the following criteria:

  • directly answers the prompt, and is comprised of a paragraph or two
  • uses proper punctuation, grammar and sentence structure
  • demonstrates an understanding of the distinctiveness of a faith-based approach to education

While there is no minimum word count, it is often the case that responses are between 150 and 250 words.
