Advice to Incoming Students

Value the opportunity you have at a small school. We are fortunate to be able to build relationships with professors, but it is only as useful as you make it. I think Wofford is unique in that sense because we are small, it allows you to be more than just a number.

Why Wofford?

Wofford is all about community. Everyone here encourages you to get involved, and that is the best thing you could do. Wofford is always moving and there are always things to do and new people to meet. A big reason that I came to Wofford was because of how excited the students I met here were about the school. Since being here, I understand why they love it so much.

Favorite Wofford Professor, and why?

So far my favorite Wofford professor is my English 102 professor, Patrick Whitfill. He is very passionate about what he does and he is very willing to help. I am wanting to major in English, and he has been one of the reasons I want to pursue that.
