One of my favorite things about Wyoming Catholic was the attention that even a single student got from the staff, faculty, administration. You could see everyone you wanted to at lunch—you and a group of students could find yourself talking to the president, or to a theology professor, or a classmate and have a truly profound conversation.

Wyoming Catholic offers its students the opportunity to be part of this ‘great conversation’ of civilization through reading the Great Books, experiencing the outdoors, and being immersed in the heritage of the Catholic faith—something that Christ gave us to start with, that has been reinforced from ancient times to now, and that I look forward to passing on to my children in the home.

My liberal arts education has helped me most directly in seeing the whole picture of life: it drives you to look at the whole picture, not just at one field such as biology or literature, but all of man and the world. This is especially true of Wyoming Catholic’s outdoor program. I would say that when it comes to the market, portfolio, or estate management, this education helps you keep the whole thing in mind, and ensure all the parts are united towards the goals.

The docility I learned at Wyoming Catholic College has served me well, and has made me teachable in all the different career areas I’ve been blessed to explore since my time in Lander.
