Hometown: Durham, NC
Majors: Theology and Philosophy, History

"I hope to become an Archaeologist after college. I will be digging up pieces of people's lives and trying to understand who they were, how they lived, and what they believed in. A key piece in accomplishing this in understanding those beliefs. To comprehend their lives I must first understand their faiths and the thought process of their society."

Hometown: Willow Spring, NC
Major: Outdoor Ministries, Christian Education; Minor: Spanish, Environmental Education

"The RELP Department has been fantastic in helping me to figure out the difficulties that arose when I decided to declare a double concentration in Christian Education and Outdoor Ministries. They were supportive and helped to work out several kinks such as the number of internships I would have to complete or whether or not the electives I took would count for both concentrations. I am really looking forward to delving deeper into my major!"
