As a sophomore psychology major, Lydia is learning how to combine Biblical perspectives and clinical psychology. "Throughout high school, I knew that
I wanted to attend a Christian college and study psychology. I wanted an atmosphere that promoted genuine Christian growth in my personal life and I
also wanted to gain a balanced perspective on psychology, one that emphasized biblical counseling as well as clinical psychology, and sought to prove
that true science and the Bible work together. There were several schools that offered these ideals, but I was sold on Clearwater after I visited and
saw how friendly and approachable the professors and students were and learned about the college's focus on personal discipleship. God has definitely
used Clearwater in my life to draw me closer to Him."
