Our Geneva Story

Both exciting and frightening!  We were excited to see our daughter begin to realize her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher.  At the same time, we were very concerned about her leaving home and being independent of us (except for our financial support of course!!)  As a member of the soccer team, she arrived early with very few people on campus and was “seemingly” all alone. 

After leaving her standing in front of Clark Hall, the four hour drive home was probably the longest and quietest time we had ever spent on the road! To top that off, when we went back for our first visit (Family Weekend), she basically did not have time for us! We still laugh about that today and she says, “Sorry, but I was a freshman!” It is exciting to see how she has matured, both personally and spiritually, through her life experiences at Geneva.
