Truett Seminary's has a team of current students that help our prospective students and applicants. From campus visits to scholarship services, we want to help prospective students discover more about Truett and about how the Seminary can equip and prepare them for their calling.
These current Truett students are excited to share about their journey to Truett and experiences they have had at seminary. Prospective Students may recognize them from a Truett recruitment visit to their school or from a Truett exhibit booth at a conference they attended.

Previous Institution Attended: Baylor University (BA Spanish)
Why I Came to Truett: I first became interested in Truett when a friend of mine told me about her plans to come. We talked about how she loved the community and felt like it was the right next step for her. I came to visit her, and as she was showing me around campus, I instantly met the kind and welcoming community that she had been talking about. As I was looking into the program, I learned about the joint MDiv and MBA program that Truett offers with the Hankamer School of Business, and I felt that this was the program for me. I loved my time in undergrad at Baylor, so making the decision to stay was an additional blessing!
Favorite Part of Being a Truett Student: My favorite part has been getting to meet so many welcoming people and to be in such a Christ-like community that has encouraged me in my walk with Christ.

Why I Came to Truett: After finishing my BA in Religion, I began to look into graduate programs that best suited my call to ministry. After some time, I found out about Truett Seminary through a friend. After visiting in person, it became clear that Truett had a perfect blend of rigorous academic study as well as an intentional and personal approach to ministry. I was really set on coming to Truett because of its efforts to further education within circles of different ethnicities and traditions.
Favorite Part of Being a Truett Student: I love getting to meet new students, staff, and professors and build connections with them. Ever since I arrived on my first day, I have also been welcomed as part of a family, so Truett feels like home to me!

Why I Came to Truett: Around the time I was discerning my call to ministry, my undergrad institution and Truett were coming together to partner. I was awarded an awesome opportunity to come to Truett through the Bishop Scholars Program at Georgetown College. As I learned more about Truett, I was convinced that it was the place I was meant to be.
Favorite Part of Being a Truett Student: I love Truett's emphasis on spiritual formation. A minister has to be ministered to, and Truett provides a beautiful space for that to happen.
