Fun Fact About Me

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

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.

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.

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!
