"I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God's mysterious plan, which is Christ himself"

Colossians 2:2

May the uniqueness of your experiences color the beautiful tapestry of God's Kingdom.


How beautiful is the imagery of being knit together, being woven together, by strong ties of love. This is our hope for the incoming IO 2019 class this year, and for your time at Taylor. 

We want to highlight the fact that each of us brings something so unique, from our cultures, countries, testimonies and personal stories. We also want you to experience the joy and beauty of what it looks like to do life together, and reflect God's kingdom. 

We hope that you find a loving community at Taylor, and see the beauty in coming together with our individual stories, and being woven in ties of love, laughter, friendship, mentorship and and so on.

Our international students come from more than 40 countries and make their home on Taylor University's residential campus in Upland, Indiana. Through classes, activities, and life in our residence halls, you'll gain a rich, unique experience that will help you grow intellectually, professionally, and spiritually.
