Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Business Program

Carley Watkins, Business Administration Major at Belhaven University

Name: Carley Watkins, Alumna
Major: Business Administration
Hometown: Madison, MS
Fact: Despite my outgoing personality, speaking to a classroom of peers terrifies me!

I chose to come to Belhaven because... The smaller class sizes allowed for more one on one attention between professors and students compared to the larger university I previously attended. Because of the number of students in each degree program, I get to see a lot of the same faces in all of my classes. This has allowed me to develop great friendships that I will carry with me beyond these walls.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... I can't narrow it down to just one, but first would be my relationship with God. Belhaven professors and the curriculum have helped me to continue to grow spiritually, and since I started attending Belhaven, I have become more involved with my church and community. The other relationship would have to be that of my academic advisor, Dr. Ervin Martin. He is an excellent teacher who has helped me with everything from the beginning, and he has made me feel the most comfortable at Belhaven.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I feel that I am prepared for my career and am excited about facing the new challenges that the business world has to offer. My education here has put me in a position to compete for the best jobs in any market, and I will always be proud to say that I graduated from Belhaven University.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Influential
