CHRISTINA from Austin, TX
DBU is a fantastic place for students who are looking to not only further their education, but also their social life and faith. Everything at DBU oozes with fun, a sense of community, and the love of the Lord. I'm so excited to be attending there in the fall, because I know that I will grow in Christ and grow as a person as well.
