Favorite thing about Whitworth: That it has -- and cultivates in its students -- the courage to explore the most challenging issues of our time, to consider a broad range of perspectives, to engage in robust but civil discourse and to accept at the end of the day that thoughtful Christians may disagree.

One piece of advice for applicants: Consider the entirety of the experience a college has to offer -- academics, residence life, co-curricular opportunities, things to do off-campus, career and graduate school placement.

Free for all: I love to play basketball and watch just about any team sport. I love to travel, to play cards and board games, and to read good, thought-provoking books. And I love to eat good food in good company. I don’t love pessimistic, negative people. I don’t love heat and humidity. And I don’t love people, processes or just about anything that is illogical. Who has time for that? Things people may be interested to know about me include that I was a Rotary foreign exchange student in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for a year in high school and studied in Seville, Spain, for a semester in college. I started my career as a newspaper reporter and once flew with the Blue Angels to cover an air show. And I believe I may have the best job in the world.
