Finals week encouragement from professors

Need to power through this week?

Dr. Jeff Cramer: Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering

It’s important to remember that whether you nailed it or bombed it, this semester does not define you. I’m sure you flourished and floundered. It’s a journey and this semester was just one small part of it. Years from now you’ll look back and see how you’ve grown. Think about this Henri Nouwen quote, “What makes us human is not our mind, but our heart, not our ability to think, but our ability to love.” These times are special. Reach out to that person you’ve been meaning to and give them some encouragement. Thank some people that were there for you. Do your best on the last paper/presentation/exam. You can do finals week. You’ve got this!


Susan Nace: 2D Studio Adjunct Faculty

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”  – C.S. Lewis

Choose your priorities, work hard, be still, pray much and put God at the helm of your ship this week. He is The Great Navigator and His guidance system never fails. You are good enough to do what you are called to do. Be the best God created you to be this week.


Hank Voss: Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies

In every chapter of life, we walk through seasons. Some of us are finishing our first year at Taylor — others decades of service. Wherever we are, we can find encouragement during finals week from Paul’s testimony. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day — and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” Finish strong!
