Fact: Students at Belhaven pride themselves on being quirky and unique!
I chose to come to Belhaven University because... of the Christian curriculum and size. My minor was Psychology, and I wanted to learn that from a Christian perspective. Also, one of my requirements for a college was that I would know the people I passed by when I walked to class.
One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University is... I have graduated from college with four of my best friends. We were friends all four years of college, and know each other like no one else! We're all spread around the world now (Australia, Texas, Illinois, California, and Mississippi), but we still manage to stay in each others' lives.
Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I am currently enrolled in the College Student Personnel Master's Program at the University of Southern Mississippi. Because of my involvement on campus, especially through the Belhaven Leadership Council, I have chosen to go into the Student Affairs field.
However, even though my career is different from my undergraduate degree, I am using the knowledge I've learned every day. The great thing about a Mass Communication or Psychology degree is that they're extremely practical! I also feel I have a 'leg-up' in my graduate courses because of the high academic level at Belhaven.
