What JBU students are saying;
“I met Dr. Walenciak in Guatemala. He flew to my home country and met my family before I came to John Brown University! As an international student, I have experienced firsthand how welcoming Dr. Walenciak is with all students who come from different backgrounds. He cares deeply about making JBU the home far from home for many international students, and I have to admit that he makes the best guacamole I have tried in my four years in the United States!”
