Why Wofford?

I dual-enrolled a few classes during high school, and my experience with the students in those classes was that they were counting down the days until graduation because they couldn't wait to leave. I didn't want that. I want to cry at graduation because I am so sad to be leaving people I love and a place that has been my home for the past four years. That is Wofford. We love it here and wouldn't trade our time at this school for anything.

Fun Fact About Me

I once drank 2 pounds of strawberry milkshake in 7 minutes, then ran an 8-minute mile through downtown Annapolis, MD in my pajamas at midnight.

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

Dr. Whitfill - He genuinely wants his students to learn and to engage with what we are reading. His papers are focused on ideas and in-class discussion with him is absolutely fantastic because I always find myself discovering ideas that I had never considered before.

Advice to Incoming Students

There are more important things in life than good grades and a high-paying job. So focus more on relationships, on making memories, and on developing who you are as a person.
