The summer was great, but it sure is great to be back at Judson! It’s amazing how this small college has become like home for me in just one short academic year. I just began my sophomore year here at Judson, and I’m already excited about what this year has in store. It feels so strange to see how much I’ve grown since I started out as a freshman. I remember the beginning of my time in college just like it was yesterday, and sometimes it’s still strange to think about how I ended up at Judson College. A small liberal arts college for women was not exactly at the top of my list of schools to check into during my college search, but I’m so happy to be here now! I learned about Judson through a member of my church and immediately fell in love with the Christian atmosphere, small class sizes, commitment to missions and service, and the science department. I am majoring in biology with a minor in chemistry. My original plan was to graduate from Judson in a few years and head off to medical school, but now I’m exploring my options as a science major and just seeing where God takes me.
I am originally from the small town of Thomasville, AL located about an hour south of Judson’s campus. I love being close enough to have an easy drive home on holidays, but I’m much too involved here at school to go home much. Judson has really helped me to come out of my shell, and there is always something to do! I enjoy being an ambassador, or “Lady in Red,” as we like to call ourselves, singing alto in the choir, serving as a sophomore Honor Council representative, spending time with my wonderful Judson sisters, and staying involved with campus ministries.
I know this year is going to be fantastic and full of new experiences, and I can’t wait to see what God has planned for me during the rest of my time at Judson!
