We are confident that the university is in good hands going forward.”
When we think of professor-student research collaboration, the humanities usually are not the first subjects to come to mind; however, just this last year, professor-student research in the humanities reached print. An NNU English professor and undergraduate student’s research project eventually led to the writing and publication of “Literary Catholicity: an Alternate Reading of Influence in the Work of C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton.”

My extended family is one of those families that bleeds their school colors. For us, that school is Washington State University. Everyone in my family went to WSU. After graduating high school in 2006, I chose to attend Northwest Nazarene University eschewing the family tradition of becoming a Cougar.
