Q: Why did you choose to come to Virginia Wesleyan?

A: I really liked the campus and how beautiful it was when I visited to do an admissions interview. It was also the college that offered the most scholarship money with the lowest out-of-pocket costs.

Q: What is one of your favorite memories that you have made while at Virginia Wesleyan?

A: Although it didn’t happen on campus, it would have to be the trip I took to Israel as one of the classes offered during a winter session course. One of the defining memories of that trip was learning to waltz and subsequently waltzing on a boat on the Sea of Galilee.

Q: If you could change one thing about your college experience what would it be?

A: I would definitely talk to upperclassmen in my major about what classes fit what I want to do and take more of those classes.

Q: What piece of advice would you give to your freshman self?

A: To get involved and connected before junior year! College is a lot more fun when there are people you can enjoy it with; friends make anything more enjoyable!

Q: How do you think you have changed during the four years that you have been at Wesleyan?

A: I definitely “came out of my shell” and got a whole lot more comfortable with who I am. I’ve learned to accept and embrace the weird quirks I have trust me I’ve got plenty and not try to hide those from people.

Q: What is one thing that you will miss about the school after you graduate?

A: I will definitely miss the friendly community here. The professors I’ve had have all been incredibly smart and easy to talk to, whether it be about class material or a casual conversation.
