“Belmont Abbey College, particularly my studies in the Classical Humanities, has prepared me for my teaching career in many ways. A teaching career not only requires you to know your content, but to be able to present it in an engaging and persuasive manner. Belmont Abbey’s Classical Liberal Arts curriculum helped me do just that. My studies in Philosophy, Latin, and the Great Books have not only given me the tools to seek out and know the truth, but to be able to present it, defend it, and utilize it to bring the younger generations to goodness, truth, beauty.”

“The philosophical formation and education which I received at Belmont Abbey College is more than a degree.  I use the term formation because I was truly formed to search for, and rejoice in, the beauty of the truth.  The Department of Philosophy pointed me in the right direction and equipped me with the beginnings of the intellectual virtues to strive for the truth in my ministry and in my Life.”
