Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Intercultural Studies Program

Danielle, International Studies Major

Name: Danielle Stafford
Major: International Studies
Hometown: Collierville, TN
Fact: I love to travel with my family; I've been to two Wonders of the Ancient World, six countries and forty-two states.

I chose to come to Belhaven University because... I loved the intimate class sizes, genuine friendliness of the students, and personal involvement of the faculty. I enjoyed the fact that at Belhaven, I would not be “just a number”, but that my professors actually were interested in my life and success.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University is... The relationship with my roommate; we were in the same peer group during Welcome Week, and became best friends and roommates for the rest of our four years. Even though she was interested in music, and I in International Business, Belhaven has a way of bringing everyone together. My time at Belhaven would not have been the same without her fun, encouragement, and genuineness. 

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I have had more abroad cultural experiences which have inspired me to attain my Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, and pursue International Business in graduate school.

One word to describe your experience at Belhaven: Unique
