What do you enjoy most about working in CU's Office of Admissions?

The Office of Admission is a dynamic and exciting place to work. I particularly love the student interaction and just getting them excited to attend college. I enjoy meeting all of the many out-of-state students throughout the United States that I have met. Last but not least, I’m a proud graduate of Claflin University.

Do you have a favorite spot on campus?

I love the Panther Plaza! I enjoy seeing the students out on the plaza having fun.

What's the best tradition or campus event at Claflin University?

I would have to say the best tradition at Claflin University for me is the Parting Ceremony. At this ceremony, first-year students say goodbye to family and walk through the Arch of Confidence, cementing their commitment to the college experience.

Any favorite restaurants or hangouts in Orangeburg?


Music I Love

I love gospel and jazz.
