Student Testimonials

"The Christian Studies major at Roanoke College helped give voice to my own convictions and prepared me to enter a diverse world."

Natalie Gessert, pastor, Bethany Lutheran Church, Pittsburgh, PA

"My major in Christian Studies has provided me the theological and philosophical lens through which I view my work in the criminal justice field. What I have learned continues to color my world and influences the decisions I make everyday."

Trent Thomson, Deputy Sheriff, Roanoke, Va

"The religion courses at Roanoke were the best possible preparation for graduate school I could imagine.  They pushed me to refine my critical thinking skills, and to express myself more clearly both verbally and on paper. These skills proved invaluable in graduate school, and placed me at an advantage relative to other students."

Dr. Houston Johnson, Asst. Professor of History, Bridgewater College
