    Favorite Class

    Being a sociology major, Dr. Steven Cades, Dr. Patricia Horne, and Dr. Jeanette Sherbondy were my new Washington College family on my mission to get my bachelors degree. With all the electives I took, I had some great professors who were specialists in their field — Dr. Donald McColl (art), Dr. Satinder Sidhu (astronomy), Dr. George Spilich (psychology), and Dr. Michael Kerchner (psychology). They all had a hand in shaping my future.

    Fondest WC Memory

    I have two. One was when I was sitting at my desk on May Day and the entire lacrosse team ran around the building. My office was on the garden level. My fondest memory was walking out of the elevator at the President’s Office level and running into Larry Hagman.

    Let’s Hear It for the Liberal Arts

    Washington College employed me and allowed me to continue to advance my education while I was working. They believed in me and I never let them down in my work or studies. My education has allowed me to use my knowledge in day to day operations while I interact with others.


    As a non-traditional student and working full time, taking classes allowed me to choose outside the box. Reach for the stars. Washington College offers a unique experience for all who seek to be different in so many ways. As a student, take advantage of traveling abroad and exploring new places.
