When I was looking for a college, I wish I had been told...

I wish I had been told to look for a place that still feels like home when you're away. When we had to go home due to the Corona virus outbreak in Spring 2020, I was blown away with how much everyone still stayed in communication. Although it was devastating to lose part of our college years, my classmates and I grew closer together and it really made everyone desire to be better friends. Find a school where when you are gone, you still feel like you're at home with friends that are always there!

Advice to Incoming Students

Relax! You can take a deep breathe and realize that you don't have to have everything answered yet. At Wofford, you do not have to declare a major until sophomore year so if you need some time to figure out what you want to major in, you can take time to figure it out! It will all work out.

After Wofford, I want to...

I want to pursue my Masters Degree in either Real Estate Development or Historical Preservation! I'm still trying to decide which outlet I want to pursue but I've always loved real estate and architecture so a double major in Business Economics and Art History was the perfect combination for me!

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

Dr. McArthur! (Microeconomics Professor) He really knows how to teach the material well and always has great metaphors for explaining hard concepts. He's always willing to talk in his office and will even tell you about his sweet granddaughters.
