Why Wofford?

I always wanted to go to a big school and UGA was my number one school for as long as I can remember. When I was scheduling college tours my mom mentioned that I should look at Wofford and I remember saying "Wofford? What is Wofford?" A month later, I was taking a tour and falling in love with this amazing school. I had this over-whelming feeling that Wofford is where I am meant to be. I went to tour UGA the week after Wofford and looked at my parents after that tour and said "This isn't Wofford, I don't want it." I prayed so hard to God that He would make it over obvious that Wofford is my home. And He came through. I was driving home from visiting my friend at Clemson and was having doubt about Wofford. When I was on the highway coming home I prayed and asked for a sign for where I should go. I looked up from that prayer and the car in front of me had a Wofford sticker. The rest is history!

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

My favorite Wofford professor is Dr. Bopp because she is such a motherly figure and cares about each of her students fully. She is always available if I need someone and is interested in what is going on in her students' lives. She also loves to bake so that means lots of sweet treats sometimes!
