Why did you choose William Woods?

I chose William Woods due to the small class sizes, volleyball team, and the location of the school. All of my professors know me on a first name basis, and I can always find a time to meet with them during office hours if I have any questions. The entire athletics program at The Woods has pushed me to become a better version of myself. I love the location of the school, since I like being far away from home!

What campus organizations are you involved in?

University Ambassador, Association of Student Athletes, National Society of Leadership and Success, Academic Honor Committee, and Campus Standards Board

What is your favorite thing to do in Fulton?

I enjoy taking walks to Lulu’s, since I am an ice cream fanatic. I also love going to the bowling alley and watching the sporting events on campus!

What is the best LEAD event you’ve ever been to?

I really enjoyed when the old Kansas City Chiefs’ mascot came to campus and told us an inspirational life story about himself. I bought the book so I could learn more about it!
