Advice from Blake: Make friends! Friends make a world of difference in college. Friends provide knowledge, comfort, and stability through the hectic times of college. By the time you graduate, many of the friends you make along the way will feel just like family!

Favorite spot on Campus: My favorite spot is Squirrel Park watching all the campus life! Like a beehive, the campus is always bustling and buzzing with student life and activity. Plus, you can sometimes smell the wonderful flowers from the front steps of the Columns building on the breeze.

Favorite College Memory: My favorite college memory was all the times I spent with my friends on campus! Whether it was at research conferences, study sessions, or local restaurants, we always managed to bring laughter and fun within each other’s lives.

Favorite Chowan Memory: My favorite Chowan memory was every time I got to participate in interviewing potential scholars at Chowan Scholarship Days. Having the opportunity to see the passion of other students and to pass the responsibilities along to them is one of my truest honors in my life.
