Q: Why did you choose to come to Virginia Wesleyan?
A: I always laugh when I think of this question. One because I never know how to answer and two because I laugh at myself every time because I never know how to answer. So here is me trying. I came to choose VWU (when it was VWC) because I heard there was going to be a new music director entering which I thought had a lot of opportunity and promise. As well as, my sister was still at the school and my brother, who also went here.
Q: What is one of your favorite memories that you have made while at Virginia Wesleyan?
A: While being here, I’ve had the opportunity to make fantastic long lasting memories from the things that I’ve done and the people I’ve surrounded myself with and I give all the thanks of those memories to the people from the Music Department, Comm Department, Marlin Ministries, and YoungLife.
Q: If you could change one thing about your college experience what would it be?
A: I think if I could change one thing about my college experience, I would have loved to go on more adventures, with the university or the friends I have made. But it is still never too late!
Q: What piece of advice would you give to your freshman self?
A: I would tell my freshman self to not to worry about the years to come, whether in school or after, God has it all in control and it’s going to be trying, but awesome!
Q: How do you think you have changed during the four years that you have been at Wesleyan?
A: Looking at myself from freshman year to now, I feel that I’ve grown. Not just scholarly, but spiritually and personally. I’m not just the young girl coming into college naive to what was to come. From freshman year of enjoying college a little too much. To sophomore year of accepting the Lord and growing her own faith and feeling stuck because you are neither an underclassman or upperclassman. To junior year of preparing (freaking out mostly) to launch myself into senior year. And now it’s senior and I’m here and preparing for the next step, but loving every moment that I get to spend with awesome people and experiences.
Q: What is one thing that you will miss about the school after you graduate?
A: I will miss the people that I’ve gotten to know, for sure!
