Grace Hallenbeck, Sophomore
“Now being here isn’t so scary. I feel like I’m home.”
“My faith is a big part of my life and I was really scared about coming here because I didn’t know if I’d find my place in Atlanta.
A few things helped me find that. The first thing was joining the golf team here at Oglethorpe. The team truly feels like a family to me.
Another thing is Grace Midtown Church. A friend invited me one Sunday and ever since then it’s been the place I go to unwind.
These things really encourage me when I’ve had a rough day or I’m really stressed out.
Now being here isn’t so scary. I feel like I’m home.”
