Kyle has been involved in several organizations since coming to Goshen, plus he’s a central part of the basketball and track teams. He has a job lined up in either Detroit or Chicago after graduation, and he finds that he now introduces himself to visitors on campus with warmth and a smile, just like he was welcomed on his first visit. Meet more Goshen students and read their stories.
WHAT MAKES GOSHEN DIFFERENT?
“Goshen College thinks its own way; there is always a different view from a GC person. The biggest difference is that there is a more of a family feel, since the teacher and student ratio is smaller than most.”
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE GOSHEN?
“The friendly people. The first time I was on campus, I was just overwhelmed by how nice everyone was. What also made me choose Goshen is how well others said it prepares you for the job world.”
WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO DO WITH YOUR DEGREE?
“I hope to obtain my degree and pass the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) exam and already have a job waiting in the Detroit or Chicago areas. I also hope I can coach kids at basketball and track on the side. If that doesn’t happen, then I am looking forward to getting a coaching job.”
WHAT OPPORTUNITIES HAVE YOU HAD HERE?
“I joined many different clubs over my career at Goshen—I’ve been part of Men of S.W.A.G. (Serving with All Gifts, an all-male group that helps out in the community), MAO Corps (an organization that supports a multicultural community) and Black Student Union. I held three different jobs and I was part of the men’s basketball and track and field programs. They taught me how to balance many different activities and stay focused at the same time.”
WHAT SHOULD EVERY GC STUDENT EXPERIENCE?
“They must experience going to Kick-Off … it is a really great talent show. And attending sporting events—the Goshen College soccer atmosphere is amazing to be part of, and the men’s basketball purple and white night is a crazy fun way to kick off the season.”
