            The College of Wooster changed my life. I came from a small town, the first in my family to attend college. I had the advantage of having been an exchange student in high school, and found the college to be not only flexible and encouraging, but offering enlightening coursework beyond my wildest dreams. The close student-faculty relationship is a huge plus, and the I.S. experience prepares students for anything they will want to undertake in life. As the first double major and double minor at Wooster, the college staff, Lee Culp in particular, allowed me to accept a Rotary Scholarship for overseas study, and helped me to complete both my Junior I.S. and Senior I.S. in a timely manner so that I could study abroad in my senior year. The close relationships enabled by the campus size made it possible for me to tailor my experience and receive an amazing education. Even though I studied German and Psychology and minored in Art and French, I ended up using all of those skills in my career, and even wrote a best-selling non-fiction genre book, none of which would have been possible without those I.S. research skills

            Wooster has served as a pillar in my life. The experience of 4 years of learning,playing sports and socializing with a great group of students and faculty were priceless. It is a wonderful school for overall balance of life. I recommend all to at least look at Wooster to understand all it has to offer.

            The first line of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnet 43 reads: "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." I absolutely fell in love with Wooster when I stepped on campus for the first time as a high school senior, and that love has only grown since graduating in May 2014. Famed education writer Loren Pope wrote that "there is no finer college in the country" and he was absolutely right. Wooster has all the ingredients that make a stellar educational experience with its challenging academics, dedicated faculty and staff, and its ethos of educating for the common good. There is a deep sense of purpose at Wooster and it's contagious. I was constantly amazed at the goals that my peers had for their lives and for their education, and their goals made me analyze what I wanted out of my own life. The faculty is unbelievable across the board, and the experience of Independent Study sharpens your writing and critical thinking skills, as well as how to manage and execute a successful senior thesis project. The Wooster experience is more than academics -- I managed the campus radio station last year and my love of being on the air has propelled me towards a career in broadcast journalism. I had great access to the station and was encouraged by our advisors to report news, broadcast live sporting events, and develop confidence in what is now my career choice. Furthermore, I forged wonderful friendships that will last a lifetime and had a complete blast out of the classroom. The College of Wooster is a fabulous institution that I am extremely proud to be associated with, and it's something that I'll take with me forever. I encourage anyone interested in having a similar experience to contact me. Hail to the Black and Gold!
