Ruth Williams Major:
Huntsville, AL Fact:
I have lived in eight different places, including Germany and Washington state.
I chose to come to Belhaven because... I liked the atmosphere on campus. The other students are warm and friendly and encouraging, and the faculty and staff know me by name and say “Hi” when I pass them in the hallways. I can always count on being encouraged when I need encouragement; the sense of Christian community here is marvelous.
One relationship that meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... Dr. Rob Waltzer, of the Biology Department, and his wife Nina have adopted me since I came here. They were friends of my family beforehand, but now they are my adopted parents. I go over to their house nearly every weekend for lunch and tea on Sundays, and they are always encouraging me in my walk with God.
Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I plan to teach high school-level math after I graduate. I’d love to stay in the Jackson area to teach, but I’ll go wherever God calls me to go.
One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Enriching
