Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Political Science Program
Name: Laura Huddleston
Major: Political Science
Hometown: Pearl, MS
Fact: I play piano, mandolin, Irish tin whistle, and guitar.
I chose to come to Belhaven University because... it is a small, close-knit college community where each professor gives individual attention and concern to not only academic aspects -but also personal aspects of a student's life.
One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University is... with Dr. Phillips, my academic advisor. From the first phone call before pre-registration the summer before my Freshman year, to the meetings regarding my further education and career paths, he has always been available.
Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I was accepted at all the law schools I applied for (with scholarship offers), and I will start law school in the same year I graduate from Belhaven. If I had chosen a path other than further education, I know my degree would prove useful in getting a job in my field.
One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Enjoyable
