Favorite Class: My spring term class Great Trials in History with Prof. Locy was a great experience. I loved going to class every day and learning about trials from the Scottsboro Boys to Charles Manson. It is definitely a class worth taking! My other favorite class was a 300-level history seminar with Prof. Myers. It covered the years from 1840-1860 before the Civil War and was easily one of the best seminars I've had at W&L.
Favorite W&L Events: Christmas Weekend and Parents Weekend
Favorite Campus Landmark: The Colonnade
What's your passion? Reading and traveling
Why did you choose W&L? After going on 9 college visits, my mom and I decided to look through all the colleges one last time, and we landed on W&L. I did some research and it looked like the perfect school. After the info session in Atlanta, I was hooked — I didn't need any convincing. When I came for my interview and stepped on campus, I knew within five minutes of being here that this is where I wanted to be. One early decision application later, and the rest is history!
What professors have inspired you? Professor Locy and Professor Myers
Advice for prospective or first-year students? Branch out! As a freshman I wasted a lot of time being scared, and I wish I could have that first year back. W&L is truly a place where you will feel at home, even if it takes a bit of an adjustment period.
