Ben Gibbons - Biblical Studies Grad

Ben Gibbons

Geneva College feels like home to Ben Gibbons. “After an arranged visit through my Christian High School, I fell in love with the atmosphere that Geneva had to offer,” Gibbons says. “I love how the professors genuinely cared about me as a person and not just a number, even when I was a prospective student.” 

More than anything, Geneva’s Bible department has had a great impact on Ben. He says, “Every time I walked into the office, each one of the professors takes the time to say hello to me, and usually ask how I am doing.”

“To narrow it down though, I would have to say Dr. Watt has made the biggest impact on me. He has been and is willing to help me inside and outside the classroom no matter what the subject. I feel comfortable going to him for anything that troubles me, even if it is personal life stuff that has nothing to do with the academic life at Geneva.”  The close-knit relationship he has formed with Dr. Watt has given Ben the opportunity to become a teaching assistant for the Bible department. 

He also works as a student ambassador helping other students find their niche at Geneva. “I was drawn to this job because of how much I love Geneva, and want to share my personal experiences with prospective students and their families so that they, too, will have a great experience at Geneva and love it as much as I do.” 

Ben’s desire to help new students adjust comes to life in many ways. He gets to spend time with them and their families. He knows that even something as simple as eating lunch with new students can have a great impact on them. Ben is also on the New Student Orientation Leadership staff helping incoming freshman adjust to college life every fall semester. 

Ben graduated in May 2011.
