What do you do in the Office of Admission? I’m able to help students through the process of finding their own niche at Belhaven, and I walk them through the steps they need to take to complete admission.

What is your perception of academic quality at Belhaven University?
When I attended Belhaven, I was always encouraged to academically perform to my highest potential. I believe that students at Belhaven are provided with the unique opportunity to spend quality time with their professors, which gives them the chance to find clarity and receive genuine help when it comes to their studies. Belhaven also offers numerous internship opportunities, so many students are able to apply what they’ve learned in a professional, practical context.

What do you like most about Belhaven? The atmosphere of genuine caring and community at Belhaven is something that I noticed and loved from the moment I began schooling here. When you take classes here, you are a student, but more importantly, you are seen. The faculty, staff, and students care about each other and want each other to succeed.

What is your favorite place on campus? Why? I’ve always loved the ‘Loungeatory,’ which is the Creative Writing department’s personal lounge in Preston. I spent some wonderful hours writing, laughing, studying, and spending quality time with other students there.

What advice would you give to your incoming students? Take your time, and make as many friends as you can! Your time at college is a rare opportunity to spend time each day with people from all over the country and all over the world—and you just might have something in common!
