Why did you choose William Woods?
I chose William Woods because of the opportunities it would present in the future and in the present. From the scholarship to the professors to the degree programs, William Woods was the perfect fit for me. The class sizes were perfect and I knew that I could easily make new friends and create a home away from home. William Woods is a beautiful campus with so much to offer to those who decide to come here.

A few questions with Nick:
What are your favorite things about William Woods?
My favorite thing about William Woods is that everyone knows everyone and faculty and other students genuinely care about you. Whether it's needing help with financial aid to working through a decision or issue, everyone on campus is ready to help and point you in the right direction.
Have you had any internships?
I have interned with the St. Joseph Mustangs collegiate baseball team my sophomore year of high school with a focus in Communications/Statistical Analysis, and my junior year of high school I interned at Americans for Prosperity, a political action group advocating for personal freedoms and liberties.
Why did you want to be a University Ambassador?
Being a University Ambassador meant the opportunity to help prospective students make a decision that will impact their lives forever. I love William Woods University and I want to help others fall in love with the school and campus as well when they come to visit. I also thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and what better way to do so than by guiding the prospective new students on tours and answering any and all questions about the school!
What is your favorite thing to do in Fulton?
I have become very connected with First Baptist Fulton, and love going to church on Sundays and volunteering at youth group on Wednesday evenings. Both of these keep me busy and connected and are fun to do in Fulton!
What is your favorite memory from WWU?
The first weeks of school were very fun and allowed for a great opportunity to meet many classmates and students on campus. I definitely will remember and cherish those memories for a long time.
