Princeton Seminary has cultivated a community where I can feel comfortable questioning and wrestling with the theological, spiritual, and social issues affecting the greater church communities. This community has challenged me to be more present to the movements of the Holy Spirit around me and respond in kind to the opportunities for ministry that present themselves in the most unexpected places, the ordinariness of daily life. As a second career-student, Princeton Seminary has also challenged me to reimagine, not forsake, how my previous career experience can inform the specific ministry to which God is calling me.
The student life at Princeton Seminary has one of the most unique and diverse communities of people you will ever find. A majority of students come from around the country and world with a wide breadth of experiences and perspectives that inspired them all to make the same commitment and embark on a journey of self-discovery and faith formation into the person God has called them to be. When you are a student among the Princeton Seminary community, you have an amazing opportunity to get to know the intelligent and God-fearing colleagues, faculty, and staff that are a part of this special community, and it is the best way to make the most of your time at Princeton.
Princeton has challenged me both academically and spiritually. Academically, courses require concentrated reading and thoughtful writing. Professors and TAs challenge not only one’s writing style, but also one’s argumentation, ideas, and they encourage students to always be expanding their perspectives. Princeton attracts students and faculty from all over, which leads to enlightening discussions in the classroom. Spiritually, I have been challenged to rethink my previous faith convictions and examine new ways of imagining the Divine.

“One of the biggest lessons I learned was how to be charitable to views other than my own. Christian charity was shown to me, not just in the readings for class, but from the professors, and the Seminary community.”
