    The college is expensive but the changes you see in yourself are priceless. The campus is a small community, there is always someone you can talk to. You know you are not alone and that your professors generally care about each student. The growth you see in your faith is unimaginable. You learn so much about yourself and your faith by speaking with professors who have more experience or simply by doing the reading or assignments assigned by your bible or core teachers.
