What is your favorite aspect of working at Wesleyan?

There is purpose at Wesleyan! Whether you are a student, staff, or faculty member, the campus community and environment provides a platform for personal growth and opportunity to live your purpose.  I enjoy serving and assisting our students with the transition to college and into the Bishop family.

What is your favorite aspect of working at Wesleyan?

I enjoy working at NC Wesleyan because the college has always been a part of my life!  My mother graduated from here and often brought me to campus as a child.  I attended Wesleyan and graduated in 2013.  Now, my younger sister is continuing the bishop tradition!  I appreciate Wesleyan for the role it has played in my family’s life.  I know the best is yet to come for our students and our institution and I’m glad that I get to be a part of it!
