“My job allows me to be a tiny part of the preservation of history and culture. When I work on a piece of art that’s centuries old, and think about how many people it has impacted, I feel more connected to the past and excited for the future trajectory of art.”
A review of how the faculty, staff, and alumni of The King’s College are engaging culture.
“Classes like Western Civilization with Dr. Joseph Loconte, Marketing with Prof. Dawn Fotopulos, and Arts & Ideas with Dr. Henry Bleattler all gave me a deeper understanding of the world and greater insight into being a business owner.”
“Through things like the Debate Society, College Republicans, and House of Churchill, and many extended conversations, I came to deeply treasure the values of community and faith underlying all aspects of life.”
“I hope that my research will be an attempt to work in the spirit of reconciliation and encourage others to celebrate God’s order and creations in all of their differences.”
“Since Bitcoin is a new and growing technology, King’s couldn’t have given me the technical understanding when I was a student, but it gave me a broad perspective on the world that helped me to be able to explain Bitcoin to a number of audiences.”
“Not only is the world God’s creation, but caring for it is another way of caring for our neighbors.”
“All of the conversations and classes and seminars at King’s helped me to engage in the world with my faith as a foundation. . . . I now work in the non-profit sector to address the hyper-sexualization of our culture.”
