Why Wofford?

I began my post secondary education at the University of South Carolina at Columbia. While I felt that I could succeed there, I wanted a more intimate professor-student atmosphere and a school where I felt that I could have more opportunities to grow personally. While USC is a great school and both of my sisters loved their education there, I found that I preferred a smaller school and community to further my education. I found that Wofford College offered me the rigorous education that I was seeking as well as more opportunities for personalized growth. Along with that, I already had some close friends here at Wofford and that made me less worried about social acclimation. Overall, I found that Wofford offered me opportunities that I was not finding at my prior institution.

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

Dr. Bradham will literally do anything to help her students and she has made such a huge impact on my career and educational goals within the Environmental Department as my professor and my advisor.

After Wofford, I want to...
