I am a fashion freak!!! Gucci and Prada are my favorite designers and I would love to travel to Israel one day.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... I was recruited and offered a scholarship to play football. I did my research and found out that Belhaven was a prestigious liberal arts university, accredited in all four areas of the arts and there are only a few universities who offer this nationwide. Then, my family and I came on a visit and the campus was absolutely beautiful, plus the fact that Belhaven was a Christian school really made me consider attending even more. Once I spoke with my advisor and communication professor, I knew this is where I needed to be.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... is my relationship with my professors from freshman to senior year. All my professors have impacted my academic success in so many ways, from networking with professionals to having meaningful conversations ranging from religion, politics and life. The professors here really care about their students’ academic and spiritual welfare.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I want to go whenever God leads me and I believe that is in the public relations/non-profit sector. I want to give back to others. The motto at Belhaven is “to serve, not to be served,” and that is exactly what I want to do throughout my career. Belhaven has equipped me with not only the knowledge of my field in communications, but has also prepared me spiritually to handle any situation in the secular world.

One word to describe your experience at Belhaven: Enlightening
