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.

After Wofford, I want to...

I would love to be a teacher. A dream of mine is to teach somewhere abroad for a year or more if I love it. I am super passionate about helping and guiding kids, so this field is something that I really could see myself in.

Advice to Incoming Students
