I wouldn’t have been stretched in my moral belief system, spiritual belief system, and mindset without Vanguard.

If it wasn’t for my scholarship and my financial aid, I would not have been able to attend here.

VU has blessed me by bringing me into a community of not only future actors but future scientists and future politicians who believe that God is the one true savior.

Thank you for the privilege it has been to come here, enjoy this community, and grow from it.

It's not a typical college experience, and that's what makes it so incredibly life-changing.

I'm flourishing at VU because the community is genuine and lively.

They have done a great job with the growing diversity on campus and I truly feel at home. I got involved with Black Student Union and formed so many lifelong friendships. I'm also involved in Student Leadership and it’s cool for me to not only be behind the scenes of the major events and conversations that take place on campus, but to be mentored and poured into by the staff.
