November 19, 2015 — On November 13 Bryan College was flooded with homeschool prospective students and their family members for the first Homeschool Visitation Day event. Hailing from Indiana, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Illinois, and other states, these high school students were treated to a special day geared specifically toward them and their interests and needs.
The students attended chapel, a special informational meeting in Rudd with their parents, where they were greeted by Bryan College President Dr. Stephen D. Livesay. They then heard from admissions counselors, David Haggard, Dr. Kimmet, Kim Keck, Taylor Hasty,and Jason Glen with Jack Saunders.
The students and parents chose from 12 regularly scheduled classes in addition to 12 classes scheduled just for this event, and all were very pleased with the classes they attended. Over 30 went to Pocket Wilderness with Dr. Jud Davis and Dr. Neal Doran to learn about Genesis and fossils.
“The motto ‘Christ Above All’ displayed at Bryan’s entrance is not a false publicity,” noted one encouraged mother. “The absolute plethora of courses offered that challenge critical thinking and a biblical worldview is a given asset. The vast opportunity for ministry and missions locally and abroad speaks multitudes. But the most prized gem Bryan may have to offer became apparent in our experience with the students at Bryan.”
Morgan Schafer, one of the students who attended, said, “I enjoyed the Homeschool Day so much that Bryan has become a strong possibility for my college choice. The professors in the classes I sat in on taught thoroughly and engagingly.”
This event was well attended and an excellent outreach to homeschoolers and their families. Any questions about future events may be directed to Admissions Homeschool Specialist Pat Wesolowski
