Bachelor of Arts
While studying philosophy, I focused on the philosophy of religion and value theory (ethics). In religious studies, I have concentrated on the doctrine, theology, and practice of Christianity.
Below are the organizations in which I was heavily invested in my time at DePauw:
- I have been involved with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship all four years. I have been a Bible study leader, service coordinator, worship leader and the Large Group Coordinator.
- During my freshmen year, I became a member of The International Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta. Once I joined this fraternity, I served as the Chairman of Parent Relations and Chairman of Risk Management. Further, I was awarded the Most Outstanding in Morality in 2012 and the DePauw Outstanding Senior Award in 2013.
- Since its inception my sophomore year, I was a member of the Trap and Skeet Club at DePauw. The club's primary concern was educating and training students regarding the safe use of firearms. The club also hosted regular events at a local conservation club.
- DePauw is home to a nationally competitive Ethics Bowl team. As an underclassmen, I helped the team during their final weeks of preparation. My senior year, I became a member of the team. This commitment required at least ten hours a week for the first semester to prepare for the regional competition. Our team qualified for the national competition. We then spent about eight weeks preparing for nationals, a commitment of fifteen to twenty hours a week. Participation required team members to research various cases. These cases could involved issues that are highly controversial, like abortion or the separation of church and state, or cases where the ethical dilemma is obscure, such as international patent law.
