"I entered the doctoral program in philosophy at CUA immediately after my graduation from WCC in 2011

I am very grateful for my education at WCC for many reasons: first, because it has taught me the importance of nurturing a strong communal life for one’s spiritual and mental well-being--I really have to credit my friendships, old and new, with helping me survive through the many sleepless nights and long hours of researching and writing that are always parts of everyday graduate life. But furthermore, I am very glad that I received an undergraduate degree in liberal arts as opposed to specializing in philosophy in my college years: even when I am ignorant of certain historical details, not only am I given the opportunity to grow in humility and openness to the truth, but more importantly, having been equipped with back-country experience, poetry, literature, history, and science, I am better able to avoid the pitfalls of developing a false, academic sophistry, which would not really be philosophy, since it would be a philosophy divorced from life. And finally, having spent four years studying theology, I am better able to understand the relationship between theology and its handmaiden, philosophy. Thus, my liberal arts degree has ultimately helped me become a better philosopher.

Josef Pieper says that “the teacher looks not only at the truth of things; at the same time he looks at the faces of living men who desire to know this truth. Love of truth and love of men—only the two together constitute a teacher.” Through my education at WCC, I have learned to grow more open to others and to the truth, and I have become more capable of forming real and lasting friendships that are centered on what is true and beautiful. I sincerely hope and pray that my many long years of academic study and contemplation will bear fruition, both in the continuing education of self and in the education of my students, who will in turn learn, I hope and pray, to become lovers of wisdom and ultimately lovers of God, Who is Beauty, Goodness, and Truth Himself."
