Lydia's Discover Day Experience

It was on Discover Day that I knew Belhaven was the place for me. I had an absolute blast—from the in-depth look at the theatre department to the opportunity of speaking personally with professors, to the campus tour and all the smiling faces and future friends that I met. My parents and I enjoyed every moment.
