Sebastian Bjernegard
Admission Counselor

Hometown: Upplands Väsby, Sweden
Degree: Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies and Ministries; Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy
Hobbies: I am an avid reader of non-fictional, which is mainly limited to theology of philosophy. I love to be outdoors. And I am a heavily extroverted people person; I would wither without daily social encounters.

What do you do in the Office of Admission?
I show prospective students the beauty of all of Belhaven. My job is simply to show them how Belhaven shaped who I am, and how Belhaven can do the same thing for them.

What is your perception of academic quality at Belhaven University?
The standard is high. If a student desires to be challenged even beyond the regular coursework, the Honors College is a great opportunity to do that. The professors are willing to work with students in order to enable their academic and spiritual growth.

What do you like most about Belhaven?
I love the faculty and staff. I am greatly indebted to the professors and the RUF Campus Ministers I had. These relationships have had a great impact in who I am.

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?
The Wynn Kenyon Think Center. I spent many hours there during my time at Belhaven. It is the perfect place to put my headphones in and get work done, and it is equally the best place to do group studies. It is also a great place to watch a TV-show.

What advice would you give to your incoming students?
Get to know people. Challenge yourself to get to know as many people as you can during welcome week. And then spend your time in college cultivating relationships with people you have met and enjoy.
