Why did you choose ETSU?
ETSU was just one of the many state schools I had on my list to visit. However, when I came to campus for an open house, I was surprised by how different my experience was compared to other schools I had toured, even compared to other private schools. I felt welcomed and wanted by everyone I talked to during the open house and from that point I knew I’d have that sense of community and support that I was looking for, my home away from home in a sense.
What would you want a prospective student to know before coming on a tour with you?
If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask! ETSU isn’t going to be for everyone, but it could be the school for you, and I’ll do everything I can to help you make the decision that’s right for you.
What do you like best about the area?
I love all of the nature that surrounds Johnson City. There are so many hiking trails and places to explore and we’re only an hour from the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s also nice that Johnson City isn’t huge so it’s quick and easy to get nearly anywhere in town from campus.
