How has her UD education set her apart?
Through the liberal arts education provided by UD, Marie found that she grew in her
Christian faith, established a successful work ethic, and was taught how to think
for herself and “to seek truth, encouraged to be curious, and learned skills in communication,
whether on paper or in person.”
Marie said that she was able to find what she was most passionate about by taking
a variety of classes under many superior professors and becoming involved in a variety
of organizations such as Crusaders For Life, RHA, and the athletic department.
How did her experience at UD prepare her for the future?
Marie attributes much of her preparation for life after graduation to the wisdom of
her professors that she was able to study under at UD. “I was so grateful to my professors
for the education they provided. They taught me that doing excellent work and caring
deeply would serve me well. Interacting with my professors was the bulk of learning
professionalism. I was blown away by the grace, knowledge, dedication, and the level
of discussion that was promoted in class.”
