Wayne Briggs
"To say DBU has impacted my life would be an understatement. The Lord used this university to grow me in ways I never could have imagined. DBU provided me with mentors and friends who never failed to point me to Christ daily. The love and care from this campus always reminds me of the hope found in Jesus Christ. Now, I look back on the four greatest years of my life with the biggest smile!"
- Wayne Briggs ('19)
"The Lord made everything about my DBU experience possible. He provided in amazing ways every semester. I'm thankful for the time I had at DBU, as I've seen how faithful God is and how He always sustains me. If God can do this, He can do anything."

"Through my time at DBU, I not only learned valuable business concepts and leadership lessons, I learned what it means to practically combine faith and vocation. Whether it was my professors investing in my life outside the classroom, global travel study trips, service opportunities, or peers who are also seeking the Lord, DBU showed me what it looks like to seek first the Kingdom with excellence and professionalism."
-Jonathan Fechner ('17, '20)
"One of the many reasons I choose DBU is because I am not considered just a number. The faculty and staff genuinely care and want to make a positive impact on students. I am thankful for DBU and its mission to continue to change lives, as it has mine."
