Wheaton College Sociology Alumnus Noah Chung
Noah Chung '12
Master of Divinity (M.Div.) student, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, IL
Caring For Communities
"At Wheaton I decided to major in sociology, seek mentorship, join a Christian community, and take some risks by doing some urban ministry internships through my sophomore and junior summer. I cannot begin to explain how each experience molded me into the man I am today. These experiences shaped how I view society and culture, how I am to approach that with a strong faith, and how that empowers me to pursue my vocational calling."
Julia Wittrock Hensel '15
Strategic Sourcing Analyst, 3M
Thinking Critically, Asking Questions
"After I graduated Wheaton, I started a position in supply chain at 3M. Unlike many of my colleagues, I had no formal education or training in supply chain. Yet, because of my liberal arts education, I knew how to think critically and ask good questions, which allowed me to thrive in this position."
