Why did you choose to come to MSU? I chose to come to MSU because of the atmosphere. The campus is beautiful, and the community is both welcoming and supportive. After visiting several colleges, MSU is the one that felt like home.

How has the METP program enhanced your college experience at Mississippi State? Being a part of the METP program has allowed me to meet upperclassmen in my major who are always willing to lend advice along the way. It has also allowed me to develop many friendships that I know will last for many years.

What are some of your on-campus involvements outside of METP? I am very involved at The Wesley on campus. The Wesley is a great group of people who I now consider a family. Throughout each week, there are several opportunities to serve the community, fellowship, and grow in faith.  I also am a member of Lambda Sigma Honors Society.

Please share a funny moment/interesting fact about yourself. At home, my family has a small farm with several goats, a couple of pigs, one big fluffy sheepdog, and a lot of chickens. We get fresh eggs and milk every day.
