Why did you choose AU?
I chose Averett because I was attracted to the small class sizes, and loved how teachers and students formed meaningful relationships that would last past graduation.
What’s your favorite place on campus?
My favorite place on campus is the quad in front of the cafeteria. I have many fond memories of playing Frisbee or two-hand-touch out there.
What’s your favorite class taken at Averett?
My favorite class at Averett was an international relations course taught by Dr. Sperber. I have always been interested in politics, and to study different theories in relation to global politics was immensely satisfying for me.
