Why Kenyon? “I’ve always wanted a smaller school and a rural campus and Kenyon has both! I love all things Latin/Ancient Rome related and Kenyon has a study abroad program right in Rome. They also gave me an amazing scholarship so affordability really helped with my decision!”

Why Creighton? Once I visited, I could tell it was the right place for me. Its campus is not too far from a big city and with a small undergrad student population, I felt like I could find my place easily. Their OT PT building is brand new and is full of simulation labs and it really caught my eye.”

How did you first hear about South Carolina, and what made you apply? I first heard about South Carolina when I was searching for schools in the southeast that had well-known business programs. After learning more about the school and all it had to offer, and after I visited, I decided to apply because of all of the different opportunities they had available for business students and their school spirit.”

Why? I chose South Carolina because it seemed like the perfect fit for me! Their #1 ranked international business program for the last 25 years is what initially drew me into their business school. The campus is beautiful and doesn’t feel too big when walking from building to building, and the exciting sporting events every weekend are something I will look forward to. Overall, South Carolina had everything I was looking for in a school!”

What are you most excited about? I am most excited to get to live in a place that has almost always warm weather, exciting game days and to meet a lot of new people.”
