What the students say

Abigail Collins, Music Education Major

When I walked into Chapel on my first day visiting Faulkner and heard the singing, I felt so connected to the whole body of Christians, it was really a special moment for me. Music speaks to me. I knew from their singing that they were seeking Him. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. I could get an education anywhere, but I wanted to go to a place I knew I could grow as a Christian and Faulkner was that place.

Allison Black Cornelius, Faulkner Graduate (Birmingham)

I chose to pursue a business degree and the classes that I took in that curriculum, I believe, propelled me from a good executive to a great executive. The dedication, attention and love coming from the teachers and staff at Faulkner helped me to excel. I encourage anyone - especially busy moms - that want to earn their degree to check out Faulkner.
