Why PC? Higher education has always been important to me. I received my BA in English from a small private liberal arts college, where the importance and value of a liberal arts education were evident. During my job search, I fell in love with PC and its values, morals, and traditions. I felt at home from the moment I stepped on campus.
Favorite Netflix show? Friday Night Lights. I am a HUGE football fan. I get goosebumps thinking about football season and all that it encompasses.
Favorite country you have visited? In college, I was afforded the opportunity to travel to several countries. I will tell you, Berlin, Germany is by far my favorite place I have visited, followed closely by London, England. Studying abroad in college gives you the hands-on experience, takes you outside the textbook, and exposes you to many different cultures. I encourage you to spend time traveling our beautiful world if you are given the opportunity.
What’s your best advice for students during their college search? Visit several different colleges and universities to get a feel for the uniqueness of each campus. Step outside the box and look for hidden, unique opportunities. Be sure to seek a place that will provide a liberal arts education that develops critical thinkers and pushes them from a fixed-mindset to a growth-mindset. Also, keep an open mind as you tour the campus, and you will find that special place meant just for you.
