Special memory from years at MLC you would like to share
Most of my favorite memories all come from the Forum productions I was in. I just loved all the people I got to meet and grow with during those productions.

Favorite class
My favorite class was Survey of Theological German which I took the second semester of my sophomore year. I learned so much about Lutheran doctrine in German which solidified my appreciation for what we believe. I also gained a greater appreciation for the great Lutheran theologians like Johann Gerhardt, Martin Chemnitz, and C.F.W. Walther.
