            2011-2015, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            As I was searching for a college, I knew I wanted a small, liberal arts school with accessible leadership opportunities and plenty of faculty and staff mentors. I also wanted a school located in a prominent city. Rhodes College is all that and then some. I know I will be a lifelong supporter of the college so that others may have the enriching experiences I did.
