Today I visited Yale Divinity School. To say that YDS is an incredible place would be an understatement—I so enjoyed my time there and look forward to returning for a visit during the academic year. Today I had an abbreviated, summer campus visit that included a meeting with Admissions, an overview of Financial Aid, and a campus tour. Based on my conversation with Admissions, it sounds like YDS would be a great fit for me; its identity is strongly rooted in both the church and the academy, which reflects my own identity and call. YDS is shaped both by faith and scholarship, and that is an exceptional combination! Further, YDS boasts a faculty in biblical studies that is unparalleled— all it takes is a walk into the bookstore to see the contributions of the YDS faculty to the field. And if that is not enough, the campus is gorgeous and the people I met were incredibly warm and welcoming. From what I can tell, Yale Divinity School is a place I would love to live, learn, and grow in knowledge and faith!
