About Brian Reinhard

What's your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

I love working at Greenville College because I am able to work with other professors who share my passion for teaching and for Jesus Christ. It is such a friendly and supportive environment. I also really enjoy watching students increase both their language abilities and their enthusiasm for interacting with and serving Spanish-speaking communities at home and abroad.
