Why I Give or Why it is important to stay connected to WJU:

Why give?  First of all, although we have lived in Texas for many years, we consider ourselves West Virginians (my wife is from Williamson WV).  Secondly, our country needs colleges like WJU where you can examine the big questions in small classes led by outstanding teachers.  Third, the truths and lessons I learned at WJU, particularly in the core curriculum classes like Ethics, Logic and Philosophy became more helpful and important to me as I passed through life.  We want those lessons to be available to future generations.


Favorite Teacher(s) at WJU:

Favorite teachers include Dr. Orr (English), Father Haller (accounting), Father Coll (Ethics) and Father Gannon (Philosophy).  Two other favorites were administrators, Father Lewis and Father


Favorite Memory at WJU:

Most of my favorite memories involve the many life-long friendships with fellow students.
