BECOMINGU
 
HAS ANYONE EVER ASKED YOU, “WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS?”
We know. It’s a dicult question, mainly because it’s about the uture.But imagine there are no obstacles to your dream lie or dream job.The usual deal-breakers (time, money, relationships) don’t apply. Nowask yoursel again, “I I could do anything in the world, what wouldit be?”Don’t be araid to dream big—identiying what you want to “be” whenyou “grow up” is really the answer to a much larger question: “Who doU want to become?” It’s really a question about the present, becauseGod has already given you special gits and passions. And those gitsand passions are as unique as His purpose or your lie.So this book is not just about OBU. It’s about you. It is your story—the story o how you came to be U by discovering your interests,imagining the possibilities and becoming the person God intends.For the past 100 years, OBU has been helping individuals just likeyou become the people God created them to be. Last year, almost1,800 students rom more than 40 states and 20 countries choseOBU as the place to start their journey o becoming. They were drawnto OBU’s integrated approach to learning that helps students viewdierent subjects through a Christian lens. They ound their passionsaddressed by our 84 programs o academic study.
