Advice for jumping into college life: Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. You’re about to enter a season of life with an amazing potential to grow!! Try something new! Get involved! Meet as many people as possible!
Advice on how to choose a college: Pay attention to students’ desire for involvement and growth at your schools! For me, I could tell that Clemson was a ‘YES’ school. Students here genuinely push themselves to grow, and say yes to every challenge and opportunity to set before them. People here realize that college is exactly what you make of it, and that’s just what we do!
Fun fact about yourself: One time I drove from Clemson to Nashville and back all in the same night to see a concert at the Rhyman! Awesome experience but I would never do it again.
