Matthew Griesel is a Biology and Theology major from Sioux City.
During his time at the Cliff, Matthew participated in Navigate pilot program. Navigate is a small group program that helps students to reflect on some of life’s biggest questions.
"Navigate is a great program to be a part of at Briar Cliff. This program helps individuals look deeper inside themselves and to see their talents and what really interests them. The discussions helped me to understand and acknowledge what I have done in life so far and helped me to start thinking about what I want to do when I graduate from college. Through Navigate I was able to express vulnerability to my fellow peers and to get to know other people on campus through this program. This program helps the individual see their worth as a human being and that treating yourself with the dignity and respect that you need is very important. This program really helped me look in the past and see the good I have done and what I want to do in the future to make the world a better place."
