Year started working at Bluffton: 



Why I chose Bluffton University: 

I choose to visit Bluffton, in short, because I saw it as the place with the most opportunities for me. I knew I wanted to go to a small Christian university that would allow me to grow inside and outside of the classroom. My junior year of high school my parents and I decided to visit as many smaller schools as we could and Bluffton was one of them. We arrived about an hour early to our appointment at Bluffton and just sitting in the car waiting for the visit to start it felt so welcoming and friendly. It felt like the right place for me.


Bluffton also offered me the opportunity to continue my athletics in cross country and track as well as the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Northern Ireland via the Cross Cultural program. Attending Bluffton was one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am glad that I did it.
