Find Success at Judson

When Dr. Crume talked to me about Judson having a bachelor’s in pschology, I was excited because I’ve always wanted to study abroad. This was an opportunity to study what I dreamed of and I was willing to take it. The Judson community has impacted my life in so many ways. It has given me an opportunity to be part of a family that has truly shaped my life. Coming to Judson has been the best experience of my life. I can’t wait to see how I can help others in my community.”
