Are you a full-time or part-time student?
I am a full-time student.

What degree are you studying for? Why?
I’m studying in business, because of all the job opportunities.

Were you scared at all about college? Why?
No, because it’s small and almost my entire senior class was going to Crowder, so I knew a lot of people.



How satisfied are you with Crowder and its employers?
I love all my teachers; they are the best. But the bookstore needs work.

What were you thoughts about coming to Crowder?
I was very excited and ready for a change.

What is your favorite thing about college?
The freedom is my favorite thing by far.

What did you expect coming to college?
I expected it to be laid back with a lot of freedom, and it has been.

What are some common misconceptions that people have about college?
A lot of people think that no one will talk to them or be mean. Also, some think they will all have super hard classes and that is not the case whatsoever. Classes are somewhat easy, everyone is nice and there are so many more people to meet.

Do you think you made a good choice coming to Crowder? Why?
Yes because I’d be stupid not using my A+ money.

Don’t be nervous and have an open mind.
