Master of Arts in Theology (MAT), Arizona campus
I often spent four hours a week on the road traveling to and from class, but the relationships with my professors and peers made it all worth it.
My time at Fuller was made FULL because of the professors and my peers. My journey of five years at Fuller Theological Seminary in Phoenix was special because of the relationships I was able to make. The camaraderie with my peers was wonderful to say the least.
In one Communications class I was the only female with about seven males as my peers. It seemed unusual, but it was one of my best classes as I felt like I added seven new brothers to the four brothers I already had. The atmosphere of the campus, the sincerity of the relationships, and the genuine care from the professors had a deep spiritual impact that changed me. Each one of my professors had a deep passion for their area of expertise. That passion showed and encouraged me to be more passionate about the new knowledge I acquired in each class.
For three of my five years at Fuller Southwest, I would spend four hours each week on the road just to get to and from class. However, those four hours each week allowed for deep conversations with God and a lot of prayer time. There were many weeks when I would drive two hours, sit for three and a half hours in class, and then two hours home.
But I would not have had it any other way, as I was always blessed by being with my professors and peers.
