Fact: Spaghetti is my favorite food.

I chose to come to Belhaven University because... of the friendly, relaxed atmosphere and the gorgeous campus. I came for a campus visit one time, and I immediately fell in love with the place and the people.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... It has meant a lot to me to be able to interact with my professors on a personal level. Dr. Martin has taken me to his church, Dr. Hubele has given me advice on life and career plans, and Dr. McAllister invited our entire British Literature class over to his house for pizza and discussion.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I now have the proper foundations in literature, composition, and critical thinking from which I can pursue my personal goals.

One word to describe your experience at Belhaven: Change. My experience at Belhaven has moved me and molded me in so many unexpected ways; it has been the most exciting and influential period of my life thus far.
