    This is where I will end up going to seminary probably next Summer/Fall after I finish up my Masters of Teaching starting this Fall.

    I choose this place:

    (1) because of it attracts denominations of all kinds and because I hope to gain a more ecumenical understanding of Christianity; I do not know much about these other denominations.

    (2) because I need to stay in South Carolina close to my mother so that I can help her with my Alzheimer's stricken grandmother. It offers much more than any of the other seminaries (Luthern Seminary, Morris College, etc.) in the state--not counting BJU.

    Has anyone else heard of this place? Here's a link to their website.

    In Christ, Jamal5000 [​IMG]

    Yes, I'm fairly familiar with it. I have a catalog around here someplace. How far would you be from Southeastern Baptist Seminary near Raleigh? Maybe that's a bit too far away.
    How will you financially make it at Columbia?

    Thank you for advice, TomV. [​IMG]

    I live about 5 hours from Raleigh. I heard excellent things about Southeastern. Unfortunately, I need to stay down here in SC otherwise I would strongly consider going there.

    I want to go CIU full-time and finish the degree in 3 years. I guess I will borrow the money, go on work-study, and find an inbetween job to bowl me over. I'd probably end up communting from about an hour away because I would save money staying at home. Blessedly, my mom and dad will help me through this because they can see that I really want to serve the Lord.

    I would appreciate any input you have about supporting myself while going full-time to seminary. What do most people do.
