  • My time at Carson-Newman shaped my life. It gave me a community in which I was able to question, shape, and strengthen my faith. Without my time at Carson-Newman, the professors who molded me, and the community that grew me, I would never be as confident in my walk with Christ and my knowledge of the Christian faith as I am today.
