As a freshman, I was extremely nervous about meeting new people and making friends in college. I am a quieter person by nature, and the idea of being thrust into a whole new social setting was extremely daunting to me!

The first day, I asked my teachers in the School of …

When I came to the University of Mobile for a Preview Day, my dad said, “I can see you graduating from here and then working here.” He said that around 5 years ago – and today, I am living out that statement.

The first time I walked on campus at the University of Mobile, I felt welcomed and embraced. For the first time, I felt like I belonged somewhere. Through the God-led staff and faculty, I have found my purpose and identity in God. In the beginning, coming to the University of Mobile was scary for me, though. I had no way …
