Why We Chose Patrick Henry

Student and Alumni Stories

Economics for the Citizen” with Professor Russell taught me that there is a rational way to look at the world. He highlighted the patterns in daily human choice making. So many of the decisions we make in our day-to-day lives are thinly veiled economic choices.

- Hannah Waters, Economics & Business Analytics, 2018

I didn't anticipate the profound and sometimes thorny questions that studying Children's Lit would teach me to face: questions of multiculturalism and racism in children's stories, the value of fantasy and fairy stories from a Christian worldview, and the balance of teaching a child moral guidance without stifling their joy and need to explore.

- Timothy Hsu, Classical Liberal Arts, 2016

Freedom’s Foundations” truly enlightened my understanding of government through learning about the classical view of the foundation of freedom and society. Dr. Mitchell especially challenges the class to think deeper and perceive the consequences to foundational ideas.

- Giovanna Lastra, International Politics & Policy, 2015

Principles of Biblical Reasoning was a riveting ride through Christian Apologetics. This class with Pastor Mike McKinley helped to ground me in my faith. It also taught me how to mix humility with an intense dedication to discovering truth. That balance between the sometimes-hostile attitudes is where loving people is so necessary, yet so rewarding.

- Andrew Kelly, Economics & Business Analytics, 2017
