It was at Nashville 2001, that I completely changed my opinion on Mennonite colleges. Prior to convention I had full intentions of pursuing the University of Maryland, however, after attending a seminar I was able to hear all the benefits that a smaller, Mennonite college had to offer. I am truly grateful that I attended convention that year, because it was life changing for me. I ended up attending Eastern Mennonite University, where I met my future husband. I was truly blessed in more ways than one!
