Samantha Groover '23

“I came to Point because it was close to home, but what kept me at Point was the community and the relationships I built. The relationships weren’t just my peers, but with professors. They helped me understand my calling. After working closely with them, I realized I could take the things I am passionate about and turn them into a career.”

THE IMPACT OF YOUR SUPPORT

Corey Bowen '22

“I chose Point because I wanted to play basketball, but I stayed because of the community I found here. The faculty and staff truly care about me, my well-being and my development as a well-rounded person. My time at Point has modeled what genuine service looks like, and it’s something I want to continue doing throughout the rest of my life.”
