What do you like most about Belhaven? It’s a home away from home. Belhaven doesn’t feel like a school, it feels like a community. I know everyone’s face and everyone is approachable. The campus is also diverse and professors genuinely care for students.

Why Campus Recreation? Campus Recreation is one of the most engaging activities on campus. There is the potential to meet different groups of people, as well as compete for championships and titles. The sports can be serious at times, but a majority of the time it is hilarious to run around and throw dodge balls at people. For me, Campus Rec combines two of my favorite things in life: competition and people.

What do you like most about Belhaven?  I love the community-like atmosphere of Belhaven, and that there are more than just a few dedicated students here. I also love the availability of the Professors here. I can really tell that they care about the students and want to see us succeed.

Why Campus Recreation? Campus Recreation is one of the best ways to get involved on Belhaven Campus. It gives the students an opportunity to not only connect with other students, but also try new activities that they might not have ever gotten the chance to, or even thought about trying. I love the dynamic of Campus Recreation as a whole, and I am excited to see what more it will be able to bring to Belhaven this year.
