My job is to work with students who are interested in attending Belhaven University. I make phone calls, answer questions, and make sure the student has a smooth application process.

What is your perception of academic quality at Belhaven University?
Belhaven offers an academic experience that is outstanding. Our classes are taught by teachers who care about their students. The smaller class sizes make the experience of learning more exciting through discussion and interaction with fellow students.

What do you like most about Belhaven?
One of the best things about Belhaven is relationships that are formed here. The community allows for a wonderful opportunity to be build friendships with fellow students and professors. Another thing I like about Belhaven is the genuine concern professors have for their students. Professors care about the student's success in school and life in general.

My favorite place on campus would have to be the Gillespie Commons. It is always such a beautiful place no matter what season.

What advice would you give to your incoming students?
My advice would be for the students to really form good relationships with their teachers. The teachers at Belhaven are here to help you through your college experience and want you to succeed in every aspect of life.
