I have been involved in a few committee on campus; Dining Services and Katherine's Kitchen food pantry. I have also been involved in BSU (Black Student Union) as the president. I am really excited to get to know all of the new students who are coming into Edgewood College. My advice to you? Try and step outside of your comfort zone a bit, talk to new people and get to know your OLT's!

Welcome Edgewood Eagles! As a student, I am mostly involved with student organizations and events. During orientation in the past, I have been involved in being part of the orientation leadership team as an Orientation Guide for incoming students. I’m excited to welcome incoming students and their families to Edgewood College this year. I want to provide incoming freshman with an amazing experience as they transition from high school to college. As a bilingual student I want to help students and families to feel comfortable in asking questions. The advice I would give students is do not be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and be engaged. 


Your Orientation coordinators


Edgewood College is truly a community of engaged learners who are invested in making positive change in the world, and we are so excited to have you join us as we ask you to take a step farther towards connecting learning, beliefs and action (you will hear this phrase a lot) during the formal orientation program, SWEEET 6, and the journey of orienting yourself to college throughout your first year here.

We are so excited to have you join our community and for giving us the opportunity to teach and to learn from you.
