After Wofford, I want to...

pursue a gap year before attending Medical School. Wofford has given me so many amazing opportunities and tools to help me be successful in this field and I look so forward to using the knowledge I gained at Wofford to help me in my post-grad life.

Advice to Incoming Students

My biggest piece of advice is to go outside of your comfort zone and say yes to random things during your freshman year. I was so nervous as a freshman and looking back, I missed out on so many opportunities through being so scared. Ask random people to go to lunch or hangout. Say yes to spontaneous weekends away. Go to every event. Try out any club you might be interested in. Freshman year is the time to try everything out and find where you fit best!

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.

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.
