Favorite thing about WSC: The professors are my favorite part about Wayne State College. With a 19:1 student to teacher ratio, you really get to know your professors better. They will help you to find your path both at WSC and in the future after you graduate.

Favorite spot on campus: My favorite spot on campus is the Willow Bowl. Not only is it beautiful, but it is a nice place to study and hang out with friends on nice days. With graduation taking place there, it really feels like a full circle after studying there for so many hours and then finally getting your degree in the same spot.

College search advice: When you’re on a visit, there’s a lot to take in. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask tour guides to repeat any information. Also, scholarships are a life saver! Make sure you keep track of what scholarships you want to apply for and keep the deadlines in mind so you aren’t rushed to fill them out. 

Hobbies: I love hanging out with my friends and family, especially my nephew and my dog William. I’m a big Yankees fan so I’m watching baseball all summer. I also enjoy scrapbooking and reading.

Fun fact: I’ve been to more than half of the states in the U.S.
