Hometown: LaGrange, GA
Degree: Bachelor of Arts in English
Hobbies: I love reading and watching movies. Film is something I’ve always been interested in, especially the writing side of it. I also enjoy spending time with friends and I enjoy meeting new people.

What do you do in the Office of Admission?
I help guide students as they make one of the most important decisions of their life. I want to be more than an admission counselor to the students. I want to be a friend they can rely on throughout the entire process of choosing what college to attend.

What is your perception of academic quality at Belhaven University?
The quality of our academia here at Belhaven University definitely comes from our professors. The faculty go far and beyond for the students, and the small class sizes means they have more time to show each student the individual attention they need.

What do you like most about Belhaven?
I love the people here. Everyone is so kind and accepting of others and you don’t find that a lot of places anymore. I have made some of the best friends I will ever have here at Belhaven.

What is your favorite place on campus? Why?
The Student Center. I love to walk through and see all the different people and talk with friends heading to class. It is also a great place to meet up with people and hangout after classes.

What advice would you give to your incoming students?
Savor the time you have here, because it will go by quickly. Try hard, don’t take your classes for granted. Enjoy yourself, Belhaven provides students with so many different activities and events where you can socialize and meet people.
