After finishing high school, Rebekah Ledlie (BA 2021) completed a one-year certificate in biblical studies at a Bible college in British Columbia, then felt unsure about what to do next.
“I was at a crossroads and trying to figure out whether I should continue to pursue Christian higher education,” she says. While attending a youth conference, she visited a Tyndale booth and connected with an admissions counsellor. “I prayed about it and felt Tyndale was the right next step.”
While completing a double major in business and international development, Rebekah served as a student leader for three years and enjoyed attending her classes, chapel, and the intimacy of small class sizes.
The COVID-19 pandemic affected the final year of her program, but not necessarily in a negative way.
“With classes being online, I still found that the professors were very in tune with students and went above and beyond to connect with them,” she says. “Especially in my last semester, I felt equipped to move forward.”
Rebekah plans to study a Master’s program in development studies and global affairs at York University this fall with the goal of pursuing her calling toward human rights, justice, and advocacy.
“Once I came to Tyndale, through my time in class, the professors, and being with other peers in my program, I felt God unveiling His plans for my life,” says Rebekah. “Tyndale does a great job of bringing a holistic approach to academia and personal growth.”
For students who are considering applying to Tyndale, Rebekah offers these words of advice:
