What the students say

Olivia McDaniel, Music Major

I chose Faulkner because I wanted to attend a school that focused on Christian living and could teach me how to live as a Christian within my profession while helping me to grow my faith.

Ashley Cleveland, Accounting Major

When I visited Faulkner, I met with a professor in the college of business, who told me about my opportunity to show my faith through my occupation. I had never thought of that before. He prayed with my mom and me that I would find the direction for my life. That tour was different than any other university tour I had been on.

Jacob Hartsfield, Business Major

When I came to Faulkner I felt like I was home. A lot of people here pray for me and ask if I’m ok. God didn’t put me here on accident. He put me here on purpose.

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.

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.

Victoria McDaniel, Liberal Arts Major

After being in the Great Books program, I knew it was something I wanted to do forever. I fell in love with philosophy, theology and writing. I can’t imagine my life without books and I want to be surrounded by them forever.
