Why Wofford?

Growing up in Spartanburg, I was at first turned off from Wofford. I eventually chose Wofford because I it was everything I wanted (besides being in Spartanburg). Wofford is the perfect small, liberal arts school and a wonderful home-away-from-home. The major turning point for me: anyone who went to Wofford loves it. You will be hard pressed to find someone anti-Wofford. (Also, I love being the hometown girl and knowing all the fun places to eat:)

Advice to Incoming Students

Keep your mind open! Originally, I didn't want to come to Wofford because I was born and raised in Spartanburg. Going to college here has completely changed my perspective on Spartanburg. You never know how going to college will change your plans. Part of the reason I chose Wofford was for a specific major that I ended up dropping after one semester. Keep an open mind for anything that might come at you!

Fun Fact About Me

I have spent three summers (2017, 18, 19) in Alaska doing missions work! The Carolina's are my home, but Alaska is where my heart is.

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

My favorite professor is Dr. Alvis. He taught my first class in my major (gov) freshman year and is now my advisor. Dr. Alvis is extremely engaging in his lectures--he always has a fun story, song, or movie reference to tie in. He also always uses everything he assigns for us to read in his lectures. I appreciate that everything we read is applicable and necessary to cover the material.
