“At the beginning of my first year, I had difficulties adjusting to the environment and to the MBU community as a whole. Rev. Scott talked to me about ways to make my experience at MBU worthwhile, how I could build community and stay in touch with who I am as an individual.”
“I feel like I found a real home here. I know that’s something I’ll always be grateful for; that will always be a part of who I am. MBU has given me so many opportunities to pursue different ideas and directions — that kind of intellectual freedom is extremely important to me.”
“At Mary Baldwin, I have learned to believe in my voice. MBU Online has prepared me with transferable skills and great mentorship. By focusing on my education and career at the same time, I am leading a successful path. Students greatly appreciate your support!”
“My interest and passion for caring for underserved communities has really grown. What speaks to me most is having the opportunity to apply the things I’ve learned at Mary Baldwin and hopefully make a positive impact.”
“I’ve always been someone who sees the power in people. The long lasting bonds I created at Murphy Deming with both peers and faculty showed me how powerful investing in people can be. As a director, I now make sure I invest in my people and patients, as they are what truly empowers me to do what I love.”
“Scholarship support allowed me to attend MBU, and here, I have been able to become a part of so much more. I was able to take on leadership positions, like becoming the president of my honors society and a TA. I was able to provide others with help and guidance. MBU showed me how much more I could offer.”
