Reflection on Parents' Weekend

"My first impression of Dordt is that it is a beautiful campus, bright, well organized, friendly and Christian. I’m glad my daughter chose this college for herself in spite of our objections to the distance from our home."
  -- Alberta

"I didn’t have a spare hour; there was always something to do. Looking forward to attending this great event next year. When I first came to Dordt to see if that is where my son should go I “smelled” the great Christian environment in the air at Dordt. My second and now my third visit I have felt the same. This is my comfort in overcoming the distance."
