Alex Risley, English Major

Name: Alex Risley
Major: English
Hometown: Jacksonville, FL
Fact: I am a second generation Greek American.

I chose to come to Belhaven because…I had a friend and former roommate from a previous school who told me I should check it out. I saw they had a football team, and I wanted to play for a Christian university that had a football program. You don’t find that too often.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University…Dr. Joseph Martin, Department Chair of Biblical Studies and Mrs. Foncree, Dr. McAllister, and Dr. Hubele from the English Department.  Their love for English Literature and language is contagious. I also love the accessibility to the professors who are willing to talk to you, from your specific subject of study to simple curiosity, and life. 

Because of my degree from Belhaven…I haven’t quite figured out what it is God has called me to do with my life but I could teach, go to graduate school, seminary or medical school because of my science prerequisites.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven is: Quadrennium.
