Local students to attend Bob Jones

Several local incoming students and their parents recently attended the first session of summer orientation at Bob Jones University.

They attended informational sessions about the BJU experience, had the opportunity to ask questions regarding academics, financial aid and student life and generally became familiar with
the campus.

Additionally, students had the opportunity to connect with other new students, current students and faculty.

The students who attended were Camille Heinz, who will be majoring in studio art; and Janelle Vernoy, who will be majoring in church music.

Located in Greenville, “Bob Jones University is a biblically faithful, Christian liberal arts university focused on educating the whole person to reflect and serve Christ,” according to the university.

In the last five years, TCL has graduated more than 500 healthcare professionals, many of whom are now employed in the Lowcountry.
