"I couldn't have asked for a better place to be equipped for my marketing career than DBU. The experiences and opportunities at DBU are unmatched, and everyone reminds me that Kingdom values are needed as much in the workplace as they are in ministry. I can be a professional in the business world while advancing God's Kingdom at the same time. On University Hill, it's about more than just being a Patriot; it's about being a disciple of Jesus."
