Find Success at Judson

I had originally wanted to just find any school that would take me for volleyball so that I could further my athletic career. When I took a further look into Judson, I realized that this school was a private Christian college, which was awesome because my faith is extremely important to me. Something that surprised me about Judson was how easily I could get along with all the professors and how truly dedicated they are to helping their student. I have a huge passion and heart for helping others and majoring in psychology was the perfect way to help me do what I love.”
