“Knowledge is out there, I can just look it up. But Google doesn’t teach you how to think, Judson does,” said Roman Munoz ’19 of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. “When I came to Judson, I had just one thing in mind -- to finish school. I just wanted my degree and to continue my life, like it never happened. But thank God I got so much more than a degree.”

Coming from a Christian family, Roman's parents had only one requirement when he planned to study abroad, which was to study at a Christian school. "I thought I was going to find myself in a class with 50 other students, and meet professors who were completely uninterested in me and my life,” Roman reflected. “Judson wasn’t like this. [Professors] wanted me to actually learn. They wanted my classmates to actually learn, to see the world from a different perspective, to challenge our preconceptions of what this or that should be.”

“All my life I wanted to be an architect, and as I became older, I also realized how important architecture is for the development of the community. At the same, I have always been interested in theology. What if I can do architecture that is informed by theology?” Roman shared.

After his graduation in May 2019 with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, Roman is now working as an intern at Church Building Architects, a branch of Church Building Consultants that is based in Glen Ellyn, Ill.
