Why did you choose TFC?Being a third generation attendee of Toccoa Falls College, TFC was always the school that I wanted to be at when I graduated from high school. It wasn’t until my junior year in high school that I made the commitment because I wanted to make friends who were just as intentional about seeking God’s will in their lives as I am.

I have felt God’s call in my life to do missions work and was impressed that I would be able to achieve that goal through the training I would receive at TFC. The Cross-Cultural program allowed me make friends who were interested in a similar field and build the contacts with missions agencies that I will need upon graduation. It has been a great experience going through school with people who truly care about me.
