    I absolutely love SNU, not only do I feel like there is a place for everyone here at SNU, but there is a great community. I have found a home here at SNU, I'm surrounded by positive and uplifting people, students, and teachers. I am growing socially, academically, and spiritually. Every day I am reminded of how lucky I am to be here, and not somewhere else.

    I've enjoyed my time here, everyone is so friendly all the time. It didn't take long to feel welcome at all. People almost instantly want to know your name and all about who you are, making it very affirming to freshmen especially.

    Here at college, there is always something happening. Whether it's a sports event (Go Crimson Storm!), a class retreat, or your friends are taking a late-night Wal-mart run, you never have to be bored during your free time. One aspect I really love here is the network of friends I have found during my first semester. I know that if I am ever bored or feel lonely, I am one text or Facebook chat away from finding one of my friends. I love the beautiful campus here, with the ever-green (and ever-watered) lawns and huge blue sky. I love the chapel sessions twice a week that are full of contemporary worship music and a relevant message for the student body. I enjoy the conversations I have with friends over lunch. On any given day, we might be discussing evolution versus creationism or the differences between the ideal government and the actual governments of today. Among friends, it is a free forum to discuss ideas, wrestle with beliefs, and learn from each other in a mature way.

    Can't lie, I miss my home but being here is an awesome experience to learn and to be involved with a community that you're not familiar with. Even though I'm far away from home I enjoy being at a school where everybody makes you feel at home.
