Student Testimonials

  • “It'll be hard to explain in less than 200 words how Jay has helped me, but I'll try. Jay never fails to follow the mission he is called to at this university, which is founded in Christ. If it is a day where I need professional counsel on student government issues and politics, Jay is there to gracefully advise. If it is a day where I need to be reminded of my faith in Jesus Christ and His ultimate plans for me, Jay is there to guide me back to that truth. If it is a day where I need someone to hear me, Jay is there to listen without judgement. Jay goes above and beyond his job description to inspire me, making me a better leader and a better daughter of Christ. He has become a true mentor and friend. And if I ever need a dad on campus, Jay is someone I can count on to care about me.” - Katelyn Martinson
