I am from the rural dirt roads of Botetourt County, Virginia. I choose Longwood because of its size and friendly atmosphere. I am heavily involved in my school and community both here in Farmville and back home in Eagle Rock, Virginia.

I serve as News Editor for The Rotunda, the student newspaper here on campus, and have been writing for the paper since March 2009. I am also a Sergeant-At-Arms for the Longwood University Judicial Board. I have spent this summer discovering the world of online freelance journalism and have quite enjoyed myself.

Registration Frustration


I know life is hard. And chances are things will not get easier. Same with college. It’s like a bell curve. Sophomore and junior years are what is really overwhelming for some people. Your freshman and senior days might just be your best.

Some people don’t realize that though. It’s okay, because it’s a learning experience. As registration rolls around, some people, especially those registering today (the last day of open registration) may be somewhat concerned about their future classes.

Most notably, there is a fear that 8 a.m. classes are different than anything else. My freshman year was full of 8 a.m. classes. Every day. Did I mind? Nope. Honestly, I would rather have all classes done in the morning so I can have the evening for whatever I need to do (most notably organization obligations).

I urge you to not shoot down the possibilities of an 8 a.m. class. It’s beneficial, even though it might make you wake up at times you wish didn’t exist. Your schedule can get better. You won’t always have 8 a.m. But chances are, you will, at least once or twice. Or maybe every day.
