What advice would you give a prospective student about choosing a college?

My advice for prospective students would be to enjoy your time in school, it goes by very fast. I would also tell them to travel and even think about studying abroad. 


What is an interesting hobby or special talent you have?

I'm an accomplished photographer. I have shown my work across the United States and Japan. In my spare time I travel and have been working on a photographic essay of rural Appalachian landscapes.


What did you like best about your college experience?

The greatest experience for me was traveling with school. I encourage students to travel as much as they can. Whether you travel across the state or across the world, students should take any opportunity to explore the world around them.
