Why did you choose Virginia Wesleyan?

I chose Virginia Wesleyan because it is a small, private institution that has everything that I want and need in a college - I feel like I am a part of something great and promising. I feel right at home and am proud to be a Marlin!

What campus activities are you involved in?

  • Voices of Soul
  • Step Team
  • Wesleyan Activities Council
  • Black Student Union
  • Circle K Tutoring Program

What is your favorite class?

World Religions -The best part about this class is that we have a big discussion, share our opinions, and analyze the differences - professor Dr. Craig Wansink makes it's so much fun!

What advice would you give to a student deciding on which college to attend?

Remember, you are not just choosing a college, but you are choosing a home. Make sure that the college fits you. I know I did, and it was the best decision I ever made in my entire life.
