Katelyn Baas
Council Bluffs, Iowa
Nursing Major ('14)


I chose to get my degree at Briar Cliff for many reasons.

First, I chose BCU for its excellent nursing program. I was extremely impressed with the fact that it leads the state in clinical hours. I also chose Briar Cliff because of the people. When my mom and I came to visit the campus, everyone was extremely friendly. It was so inviting. We left with smiles on our faces and warmed spirits. Finally, I love how service and religion are incorporated and encouraged alongside our education. 

I wanted to thank you for providing this opportunity for me to attend Briar Cliff. I cannot imagine myself anywhere else. It's the perfect fit for me. I am honored to receive this scholarship and my gratitude cannot be described in words. 

Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated.
