Sociology and Psychology double major
Class of May 2019
A senior from Franklin, Tennessee, Faith James is a sociology and psychology double major. Though she did not originally plan on attending Lee University, it grew to become her home. Beginning her first day on campus, Faith found herself surrounded by strong community and deep friendships, which left a lasting impact on her college years.
On-campus community, specifically Residential Life, has been central to Faith’s experience at Lee. Her sophomore year she became a Resident Assistant (R.A.) in Sharp Davis Hall, and became a Senior R.A. the following year. She is now the Senior R.A. of Livingston Hall, and she also serves on the committee for Worthy Now, an event which encourages young women that their worth does not have to be earned.
“Getting to be involved in Res Life and Student Development,” said Faith, “has profoundly changed the way I see people and know Jesus.”
Faith is also a member of Psi Chi (The International Honors Society in Psychology) and Alpha Kappa Delta (The International Sociology Honor Society). She also joined faculty and students in her major for a cross-cultural trip, traveling to Germany, Switzerland and Austria with the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
“While I’ve been able to receive a phenomenal education,” said Faith, “it’s the people in my community who have made Lee the transformational experience it has been. No matter where life takes me, I know I will always look back at my time at Lee as an example of God’s faithfulness and love in my life.”
