Master's College? Biola University? California Baptist University? Azusa Pacific University? Dental School? The list of my options for college seems to be never ending. There are so many amazing University's out there and so many different majors to choose from. This past weekend I had the opportunity to head down to Biola University for the "University Day." We were able to stay there overnight in their dorms, take a campus tour, sit-in on classes, and eat in their cafeteria's, just like we would if we decided to go their for college. My time there was amazing. The campus was beautiful, the people were friendly, the classes made you excited, and the entire college was so focused on God. I felt so comfortable and totally happy. I loved how the campus was a good size but not too big where you feel completely lost and confused. So for me I really enjoyed that.
I am debating between majoring in Psychology so I would become a marriage and family therapist or becoming a dental hygienist which I would graduate with a degree in science!! Both majors provide two different worlds so I am going to explore both. If I decide on Psychology I would go to a university for that, but with dental I would go to a trade school/ Jr. college. So right now I'm really trying to look at all my options and the life and career each major would give me. The options seem to be never ending and right now my head is spinning with thoughts and ideas, concerns and problems! I know that God will show me the place where I need to be and that he has a plan for me. Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
At Biola I love the chapel mornings and worship nights. They had the most beautiful worship band that leads every Sunday night. Its just an amazing time to worship God. Its one of the things I loved about Biola, that is the Christ centered atmosphere. That's definitely something you won't be able to find at a public/secular college! I love that many University's that I'm looking into require bible credits before you graduate. I desire a college where sharing and talking about the Lord is seen and heard all around campus. I honestly don't think I could ever survive on a secular campus, with only a little people believing Jesus is Lord. So for me, I love the whole Christian and Christ centeredness at Biola, and hopefully at other University's as well, which I am hoping to visit more in the spring time!! :)
