Fun Fact About Me

I studied abroad in South Africa for a semester my junior year! I was able to intern in a maternity ward and assist on two caesarian sections! An unbelievable experience that I will never forget. I cannot wait to go back!

Why Wofford?

Why not Wofford? Wofford harvests a community that provides unparalleled support to each of its students. Our professors are more than our teachers, but our friends, our mentors. They see our potential even when we cannot. Our classmates are more than just students but our neighbors, our athletes, our leaders. We work as a team to accomplish our goals and celebrate each others successes. I cannot imagine a better community than that.

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

This is a tough one, I LOVE THEM ALL! Dr. Bass, my organic professor, truly changed my entire experience as a chemistry major. He made a daunting class fun with his humor and ability to animate specific concepts in a way that we would remember them. He dedicated all his time to his student's success and spent countless hours giving us extra help. Although my time in organic chemistry is over, I visit his office frequently to say hello and 'catch up' on life.
