If it had not been for God on our sides, where would we be. If it had not been for Jarvis Christian University, where would we be. We both came to Jarvis with very little except the promise that we would receive financial aid and be taken care of by the faculty and staff. There were so many who proved that the promises made to us were sincere by going out of their way to make sure we had what we needed to be successful. We call them our “Jarvis Family” and cherish all that we experienced while attending our beloved university. We could never pay for the blessings received at Jarvis Christian University. It is a source of pride to know that Jarvis is still offering the same opportunities to students today. That’s why we will always be grateful, hold Jarvis dear in our hearts, and give back as often as we can. We know others sacrificed and gave so we could have this opportunity and believe it is extremely important for us to do the same for those coming behind us. THANK GOD FOR JARVIS CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY!
