I am from Great Mills, MD and I studied Political Science at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Shenandoah University is special to me because the campus community is so welcoming and inclusive! Plus, I’ve always wanted to live near the mountains.
My favorite spot at SU is the quad. I love the views of the mountains in the distance and watching campus community members walk by. My hobbies include hiking, rowing, trail running, kayaking/canoeing, swimming, and travel and nature photography – anything outdoors!
My advice to students is, before you visit a college, think about your goals for the next four years. Think about what experiences you want to have and what activities you want to try. Look for schools that give you the opportunity to experience new things and get involved with activities you’ve never done before.
