First Holsby online applicant
Just two short weeks ago, we told you about our new online application system. Now I am happy to tell you that for the first time in Holsby’s history, a student has applied and been officially accepted using this online application.
Our principal, Luke Thomas, likens the change from paper to online applications to changing from drying your clothes on a clothesline to using an electric dryer. Well, as the registrar here at Holsby, I am happy to be finally using the “electric dryer method!” After all, we are all accustomed to filling out applications of various kinds online and not having to wait a long time for a reply.
Our first student is Emily from Austin, TX. Her older sister, Anna, is a student at Holsby this year and now Emily has decided that she would also like to experience the great community at Holsby and to study God’s Word with students from around the globe. Anna, in turn, heard about Holsby through their aunt, who is a friend of mine from my university days. This is how most of our students hear about Holsby and decide to apply. One of our students tells a classmate, who tells their uncle, who tells their grandson, who comes to Holsby and goes back home to tell a cousin, who tells… I think you can fill in the rest of the story, because so many of you have been a part of this kind of chain. So, please pass on the news about Holsby to the people that you rub shoulders with. We would love to have a full house of students next school year – and every year!
As a prize for being the first student to apply online, Emily will receive a 100 kronor voucher to be used in the Bik (Holsby’s kiosk filled with lots of goodies). Emily: your voucher is here waiting for you when you arrive in September!
