He chose Macon State College because … “It wasn’t too far from home. It is laid back and that fits my personality. None of my high school friends are here so I can focus more.”
The one thing that surprised him about Macon State was … “The student housing. Each student gets his own bedroom/bathroom.”
His favorite professor is … “Dr. Carol Sargent. She really has a passion for teaching and cares about the wellbeing of her students. She made my Principles of Accounting 2 class very enjoyable and easy to learn.”
His favorite place to study is … “In my room by myself. The Library is a very good place to study too, but there is no place like home.”
One thing people don’t know about him is … “I can be very shy.”
His friends make fun of him because … “I can have loud outbursts. When I get a little excited my voice tends to get a little loud. My friends think I am crazy at times.”
The one person he’d most like to meet is … “Barack Obama. He will be a historical figure and if I ever got the chance to meet him I would be honored.”
Five years from now he sees himself … “As a successful accountant, planning a wedding with my current girlfriend and graduating from the University of Georgia with my master’s in accounting.”
