Wow, who knew that almost 2 years would pass so quickly?! Coming to Campbell University Divinity School (CUDS ) has been an absolute blessing to my life. Before stepping foot into my first class, I knew there was something distinctly special about this place. The longer I am a student here at CUDS, the more clarity I seem to receive on why I was lead to study here. The atmosphere is so poised for spiritual growth. The work is no doubt challenging, but I’ve felt support each step of the way.
Last semester in particular I was having some challenges with the idea of what it means to be earning a “Master of Divinity”. Heaven forbid if after graduation I was asked the question: “So, what did you “Master”? I wasn’t sure I was going to have an answer. In the process of growing, learning and becoming, it can be a challenge to find time for reflection. Yet it’s in the reflection that one begins really growing, learning and becoming.
So as a 3rd semester student I walked into Dr. Cartledge’s office full of questions and wanting to get some solid direction on how to maximize my time here in school. His advice was simple and personable. I left the office with tangible options. I appreciate that the faculty and staff at Campbell takes such a genuine interest in each student—taking the time to notice each student’s strengths.
There are a lot of great schools across the nation that offer students an opportunity to learn more. Campbell University Divinity School is, in my opinion, one of the best! We don’t just learn together, we grow together, and that makes all the difference.
