B.S. in History, Shenandoah University; M.S. in Organizational Leadership candidate, Shenandoah University
Hometown: Easton, MD.
My favorite spot on campus: The Brandt Student Center. It is an excellent place to get coffee, hang out with friends, or attend one of our many events on campus. For the Winchester area, a local hidden gem is Bonnie Blue Southern Market & Bakery. It is one of the best brunch spots in Winchester.
What makes SU special to me: Shenandoah University helped me find my true passion. The professors in the history department have been so supportive and develop their classes around student-driven research. I’ve been able to personalize my research in each class to something that I’m passionate about. I’ve also been provided with so many opportunities professionally as a student. I’ve worked as a Resident Assistant, Head Resident Assistant in First-Year halls, and First Year Seminar Mentor, Hornet Ambassador and Cool Springs Fellow.
My advice: Explore the campuses of the schools you are visiting. Spend time in the dining halls or the student centers. Also, set up meetings with the faculty members in the program you are interested in. This is a great way to learn more about educational opportunities in the field you are interested in.
