    Emily-Jane Newbern '17

    Major: Business Administration

    Someone very wise once told me, “Go with God and serve him well." These words have become the motto of my life. I am from a small town in Georgia, where my parents told me that college was the one time I could move away. Initially I chose CCU for sacrificial reasons like to get away, to play soccer, and to snowboard, but God had another reason. God brought me to CCU to reveal himself to me.
