Addison Rothrock's lifelong Christian faith is the first reason she's attending Yale Divinity School to pursue a master's degree in religion, but her college professors are a closer second than you may think. "My teachers at Furman were really influential in my life, especially the religion department," she says. "I really want to do that for other college students one day." Rothrock attended a Christian high school, but she dabbled in several potential majors before realizing religion had been her calling all along. Econ won't get tossed out the window, however. "Yale's course requirements are really flexible so I can easily take economics courses within their graduate department," the one-time Furman dance team captain says. "I want to concentrate in Christian, social, and economic ethics."
