She chose Macon State College because … “It is close to home and Atlanta. I heard that they had a great public service program, and the professors are great.”

Her favorite professor during the spring 2008 semester was … “Dr. William Upton (psychology professor). I took research methods from him. He is so funny and knows his work without reading it out of a book. You never know what he is going to say. He keeps the class lively.”
