Broad Experience

Students are exposed to a great array of helping profession work environments. Students may choose to work in a helping profession directly after graduation or continue on for a master’s degree. Wherever the Lord leads, Crown prepares students for either direction.

I have the opportunity to not just be in a caring community, but a community that fosters the same values and faith. There are so many different perspectives here from students and professors, and it creates so many opportunities to grow.

Being at Crown makes you want to stay at Crown for the rest of your life; but being at Crown also gets you excited for what God is preparing you to do after college, too.
