I am grateful for my time at Louisiana Christian University. Through all of my time at LCU I was encouraged to see through a biblical worldview, and came to understand that the words I saw each day at Cavanaugh Hall were foundational to success and wisdom, “All Truth is One.” Louisiana Christian University is equipping the next generation of science students with knowledge based in the Truth.
