Tell us about any faculty or staff mentors. What did they teach you?
One of the most helpful mentors throughout my time at Guilford has been Anne Glenn. She began working with me my sophomore year and helped me to plan my path to PA school. She was always there to answer questions, calm me down when I had freak-out moments and to lend advice. She helped me navigate the complicated application process, and has always been a big source of support both in and out of the classroom.
What are you reading, watching or playing right now?
I love to watch Netflix in my spare time! My all-time favorite TV show is Friends, but right now, I am obsessed with Longmire on Netflix.
Why did you choose Guilford College?
I chose Guilford because of the sense of community. From the first time I stepped onto campus, I felt at home. I knew that I wanted a small school where I could form relationships with my professors and where I could also challenge myself academically. Guilford has afforded me both those things. All of my professors have been extremely caring and helpful, and I feel that I am fully prepared to take on the rigors of a graduate level education.
How have you changed since you were a First Year and what role do you think Guilford College played in that transformation?
Since first year, I have become more confident in myself and outspoken in my ideas. Guilford has directly played a role in these changes because, in many classes, both in my majors and electives, I have been challenged to think critically, develop my own opinions and have been encouraged to share them.
