Tour Guide at Wofford College
Class of 2021
Hometown: Cheraw, SC
Secondary Major: Finance
Throughout my college search, I found lots of wonderful schools where I knew I would succeed, however, Wofford showed me something more. I ultimately chose Wofford because of the unique academic experiences I knew I other wise would not get. Over the past 2 years, I've camped out with my environmental science class, interned in the U.S. House of Representatives, traveled to Greece, and I am currently studying in Milan, Italy for a semester. I have been able to do all of these things through the many caring professors who have spent hours investing in me personally. This is my Why Wofford?
Take advantage of every opportunity, Meet as many people as possible, and don't be afraid to try something new.
My favorite Wofford professor is Dianne Farley. Professor Farley, a Wofford Graduate herself, truly understands what it's like to be a Wofford student. She has taught me Accounting Principles and Cost Accounting I. In both, she has always went the extra mile to help all students by sending late night emails, tutoring students who need extra help, and providing review sessions and extra practice before tests. Although she is not my academic advisor, she has given up countless hours with me to help me figure out my future. She has managed to be this great of a professor and simultaneously beat cancer. She is truly an inspiration and great professor.
Fun Fact: My dad was my principal for 6 of my last 7 years of grade school.
