As an aspiring architect and a lover of architecture, one of the many lessons that I have learned is that the sky is the limit as long as you have a good, solid foundation. Throughout life, I have observed that this principle holds true not only for architecture, but for practically any facet of living. I’ve always believed that no matter what your dreams or goals are, you can reach them as long as you have a solid support system, which in this case is my faith and my loving family.
I am fortunate enough to have a strong foundation in my family and Christian living, both of which have allowed me to grow to new heights of self-realization and self-fulfillment. My family is always there to support me, whatever decision I make in my life. I’ve always wanted to follow the footsteps of my three older sisters who also attended Christian schools. Today, however, I am faced with a new challenge of fulfilling my aspirations to become a successful, licensed architect. After thorough research and careful consideration, I have found that Judson University is the best Christian college that can instill in me the proper foundation to help me attain my highest goals as an architect, a faithful Christian, and a good human being. I believe that Judson University is the right school for me because of its strong Christian roots. As an evangelical educational institution, the university can offer a lot of opportunities to applicants like me who are looking for a Christian school with a well-known architectural program. I find a good place in the warm environment of the university. I know that this school will help me become an active member of the society and fulfill my goals of becoming a successful architect and a responsible Christian.
