Welcome to Washington College!  Welcome to the place I called home!

 

Why Washington College?

I began my time as an undergraduate student at Washington College knowing exactly what I wanted (or so I thought!).  Because of the liberal arts experience, I learned the difference between “knowing” and “thinking.”

I started Washington College thinking I wanted to go pre-law.  I graduated Washington College as a double major in economics and business management, with a minor in ethnomusicology.  With the support of my professors and advisors, I discovered so many others interests by expanding my horizon just a little bit!  Inside the classroom, I took sailing (yes, that is a course here!), learned how to think like a CEO, and helped establish the Ethnomusicology minor.  Outside the classroom, during my internship at The Walt Disney Company, I put my liberal arts education to the test: coupling my skills in communication, teamwork, and thinking outside the box.  I took my liberal arts education even further - all the way to Europe where I spent four months immersed in the Irish culture at University College Cork.  

The person I am today is a culmination of all that I learned and discovered during my time as a student at WC.  I am thrilled to be back here sharing that with prospective students every day.  I found myself and my home here and maybe you will, too!  Washington College has a special place in my heart and I would love to show you why!
