“This has been
the best year of my life so far. You can come to class and study, but the great
thing about this college is studying about God. One of the best things about
this college is the friends you develop, not only students but lecturers and
teachers. You get to meet new people who are open and sincere. Everyone is
real, loves God and is one big family.”
