To that we say, “Wowza!” (It’s Sarah’s favorite phrase)
A Raleigh native, Sarah double majored in Exercise Science and Health Science here at Guilford. She also played lacrosse. On the field, in the classroom and everywhere on campus that’s in between, Sarah has grown a lot throughout her college journey.
What is the biggest lesson that Guilford College taught you?
Check your privilege. Guilford taught be so much about how much more work we have to do as a society in order to treat everyone equally.
Tell us about any faculty or staff mentors you had. What did they teach you?
Charlotte Dixon, the coach for the women’s lacrosse team, has taught me so much about hard work, leadership and compassion. She teaches through example and truly touches all of her players lives in the best way possible.
What are you reading, watching or playing right now?
I’m reading a whole bunch of textbooks right now, it’s finals week! I’m watching The Office for the first time — yes, I know I’m late to the trend. And I’m playing a lot of Uno and Werewolf these days (Google it, if you’ve never played).
Why did you choose Guilford College?
When I was looking at colleges, I was looking for a school that reached out and grabbed me and said, ‘This is where you belong.’ When I visited Guilford, I saw the sense of community, the push for social justice and the intimate education. I knew that this was where I belonged.
