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

how important small class sizes are! I genuinely get freaked out when I realize that I almost went to another school where the average class size was over 30 students. Having a small class size is what has allowed me to form genuine relationships with my professors. These professors know me not only as a student, but as a person. I love being able to see my professors outside of class or even in Spartanburg and getting to have a real conversation with them, whether it be about class or life. These relationships are something that I value so much and are going to be so crucial to success in my post-Wofford life.

Fun Fact About Me

I have never broken a bone and I was born at 11:11 am.

Why Wofford?

For the relationships. With Wofford being such a small school, you will get to know everyone. I so value the fact that I literally am unable to walk from one side of campus to the other without saying hello to at least 5 people along the way. I love that my professors not only know my name, but know me as a person. I love that Ms. Kathy knows the kind of pancakes I like in the mornings. I love that I have to budget in an extra 15 minutes when I go to study so that I can chat with whoever I know in the Great Oaks Hall before I can really get down to business. These relationships are so important and really make Wofford feel like home.

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

This is such a hard question because I have be so blessed to have so many amazing professors! If I absolutely had to choose, I would choose Dr. Caleb Arrington. Dr. Arrington is a true gift to any student who has the pleasure of taking his class. As someone who was not the best at general chemistry, I so appreciated Dr. Arrington's willingness to sit down with me for as long as necessary to better understand and master the course material. He is so encouraging and supportive both inside and outside of the classroom. Even now, I love seeing and saying hello to Dr. Arrington on the third floor of Milliken.
