"I am forever thankful for the ways in which the Environmental Science program at Grace College has challenged me and encouraged an awe for the wonders of God's creation. Through various hands-on experiences, from caving to touring state-of-the-art facilities for field trips, sampling some of Kosciusko County's stunning lakes to learning about microscopic organisms, I have gotten to be mentored by kind and knowledgeable faculty who prioritize my relationship with Jesus first and foremost."
