What attracted you to Wofford?
The fact that it was a small school, where I could get to know my professors and classmates. Being a shier person, I wanted a school that could offer a more personalized experience that focused on the individual. I also liked the look of the campus through the virtual tour and was offered a merit scholarship.
What is your favorite Wofford memory?
The first winter that we had snow at Wofford. I remember playing with my friends in the snow and enjoying an event that I had never been able to enjoy in my home country.
What do you feel Wofford has done to help facilitate your future after Wofford?
Pursuing a liberal arts education has allowed me more of an opportunity to pursue what I really wanted to do. I came into university thinking I would pursue Biology, but after taking different courses in the sciences I found that I really liked Chemistry better. I also have liked taking courses in other fields like Philosophy and Art, which I think have helped me learn to better express myself. Lastly I have really enjoyed the great connections I have made with my professors, who I felt have assisted and pushed me to be a better learner.
