Haylie Williamson

Theology major (deaconess program), church/nonprofit management minor, from Washington, Illinois

CUC is the only university that offers a full deaconess program at the undergraduate level, and it can be completed in five years. That was an advantage to me because I want to get out into the field and start serving as soon as possible.

Deaconess Kristin has been here to guide me and counsel me throughout the program, and make sure I'm making the right decisions. All of the theology professors are just fantastic — everyone is well equipped to be teaching.
