On the Wayland Faculty…

“The faculty that I’ve encountered at Wayland set an extremely high standard in my opinion. Every professor that I’ve had has taken a special interest in the success of each student, which I feel is a very unique aspect about Wayland.”


On the Wayland atmosphere…

“What I like the best about Wayland is the family-like atmosphere that exists on campus. The faculty, staff, and even the students all promote a closeness that is hard to beat.”


On Christian Education…

“The Christian education provided at Wayland is something that I value greatly. As a Christian, my main focus is to pursue Christ in all that I do, extending even into my education and my career. Wayland provides an environment that is conducive to growing in faith, and for that I am extremely grateful.”


On smaller class sizes…

“The smaller class size has definitely benefited me while I’ve been at Wayland. It has helped me to excel in my work and has allowed me to create personal relationships with my professors that extend beyond the classroom. As a result, I feel that the value of my education is higher than most offered at other universities.”


On finding your excellence…

“Finding my excellence has been somewhat of a positive challenge. My classes and my professors have pushed me in such a way that I’ve learned more about my potential not only as a student, but also in the pursuit of my goals and dreams. I’m still learning more about myself, my goals, and my purpose, but during my journey at Wayland, I have had the privilege of discovering what my excellence is and how I can continue to grow from it.”
