- How do you relate to Dwight’s journey through college (and possibly graduate school)?
- Are you (or did you) follow the recommendations of academic mentors?
- Have you found your studies giving you a larger perspective on real life?
- How do you share your journey in higher ed with others? In what manner does your faith relate to your vocation?

Two years after finishing high school – I was working to save some money for college – I started taking college courses. And I started to get a bit of a handle on issues of career choice, etc., when, as a college freshman at Messiah College, I pursued not only a major in Chemistry but also a minor in Computer Science. I liked what I already knew of computers, i.e., typing on a display computer in the local department store:
10 print “hello”
20 GOTO 10
