With two sons currently attending Corban, Lisa King is thankful for the experience they have found as part of the Corban community. Here’s what she has to say about Corban, from the parent perspective.
From one parent to another, let me share with you our journey to and experience at Corban…
When Joe, now a junior business major, decided what type of college experience he wanted, Corban was the clear choice and the right fit. He wanted a place that would be academically strong while giving him that small class size and close relationship with his professors that only a smaller university could give. He also desired to play soccer on a team that would honor God above all. Even with dyslexia and the struggle that school has been for Joe, God’s perfect plan was for him to attend Corban.
Joe’s choice brought his older brother, Daniel, to Corban as well. Now a ministry and intercultural studies major, Daniel visited Joe a few months into Joe’s freshman year and felt the tug of Corban and the call to be there. He sensed an unusual peace and knew that it was unlike any other campus. Daniel started at Corban in spring 2016, and the experience transformed him, giving him direction, focus and purpose. He has grown so much as a young man and follower of Christ, thanks to the community of young people at Corban who are committed to their education, to their walk with Jesus, and to making a difference around the world.
As parents, we want our students to take ownership of their faith and be in an atmosphere where they will be nurtured as they grow into the young people God is calling them to be. All this and so much more we found at Corban. From the professors and staff who pour into our students continually, to the RAs who lead Bible studies and prayer support for their halls and the student government that supplies endless amounts of outrageous fun and activities on campus, Corban is truly an amazing university.
Daniel and Joe have built solid relationships with their professors and academic advisors as well as their peers that help them navigate the stresses of college life. With the high academic standards Corban holds, study groups, tutoring, flexible faculty office hours, support services for those with learning differences, and student counseling are all options students can turn to. Help, when needed, is just an ask away.
Corban has far exceeded our expectations in every area and been life-changing for our sons. As they work toward their career goals and dreams, Corban is giving them the biblical support and guidance needed to strengthen their relationships with Christ and to make a difference in the world wherever God leads them.
We are so thankful and blessed to be a part of the Corban family and community.
Rejoicing in His faithfulness,
