Andrew Hedglin, English Major

Name: Andrew Hedglin
Major: English
Minor: Creative Writing
Hometown: Madison, MS
Fact: I am a nearly rabid fan of the New Orleans Saints.

I chose to come to Belhaven University because... Belhaven was nearby and offered an excellent education at an affordable price.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... I have to name two: Joel Andrus, my roommate for 3 1/2 years here-I'll be the best man at his wedding in May. The other is Dr. Randy Smith, an amazing teacher and even better person. I am so grateful he brought me into the English/Creative Writing fold.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I'm looking at some teaching positions, and I plan to come back to Belhaven and get my Master of Arts in Teaching.
