Christopher Alt to Pursue MDiv at Boston College
Tuesday, May 18, 2010
Christopher Alt '08 has been accepted at Boston College's School of Theology and Ministry, where he will be pursuing a MDiv starting this coming fall. Chris was awarded a full-tuition scholarship for his entire, three-year program of study. At Boston College, he will be working as a graduate assistant for Profs. Daniel Harrington, SJ, and Christopher Matthews, editors of New Testament Abstracts. "I really can't praise USD enough," Alt said, "firstly for the education I received, but also for the generous letters of recommendations from Portman chairs and full-time faculty alike."
Until he leaves for Boston, Alt will continue working for Father Carr's Place 2B, a homeless shelter, retreat center, free walk-in health clinic, and food bank in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. "It has been a pretty eye-opening experience," Alt reported, "with many people dealing with mental illnesses, addictions, and loneliness."
