Favorite quote: "Not all who wander are lost." 

Biggest mistake as a first-year student? What did you learn? My biggest mistake was my first semester GPA. I took on too much and wasn't ready to be so responsible. I learned that I have to go to quiet areas with no distractions to study. I also learned that your professors like helping you and to not be scared of them.

How did you choose your major? I love to work with kids. Over the summer I do a Bible camp, and it is so fun to me. Writing lesson plans and talking to students comes easy to me, so I know I am in the right major.

What has been your best experience at BW? My favorite experience is being in Greek life.

Favorite spot on campus? My favorite spot on campus is the Cyber Café. I love getting coffee and doing my homework down there.

Best piece of advice given to you? Always ask for help and email your professors immediately with any questions.

One thing you want the incoming students to know as they get ready for their summer orientation experience? BW is a great choice, and college will be the time of your life.
