Hometown: Mobile, AL
Attended: Saint Paul’s Episcopal School
College of Charleston '13 International Studies and French
During high school I strived to get away from the South, only to discover that I will never change my southern soul. Usually people are surprised when I say that I am from Alabama, for I possess no southern accent (except when I am frustrated) and I never actually grew up on a farm. When I arrived at the College of Charleston, I realized that I could grow into the person I had always wanted to be; therefore, I am determined to do just that. I have two passions: music and international studies. Hopefully one day I will be able to combine these two things in a joint effort to positively influence our international community. During my free time, I am typically found playing music with my astonishingly wonderful group of friends.
Why did you choose to become an admissions counselor?: Because I want to convince students to come to the greatest school on earth! But seriously, this is arguably one of the most important decisions in a young person’s life. It is imperative that you surround yourself with wonderful people who exert positive energy. CofC was the perfect choice for me for this reason.
What Carolyn Likes Best About CofC: My mid-afternoon naps outside of Addlestone during the fall season. Fall in Charleston is like a dream. In fact, it’s almost better than a dream.
Favorite Quote: How about favorite poem? Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost. It’s stuck with me since sixth grade.
Favorite Movie: I love 90’s movies, such as Cruel Intentions, The Skulls, 10 Things I Hate About You... and of course, I’m a Harry Potter nerd.
Folly or Sullivans? It depends on the season. Folly has boiled peanuts, but Sullivans has Poe’s, the best beach restaurant in the area! (in my opinion)
Question Carolyn Gets All the Time: Are you from Canada? Why do you have a banjo on your back? And where is the nearest parking garage?
Fun Fact: I play banjo and guitar. Currently, I am trying to learn the fiddle. My friends won't allow me to play in public yet, but hopefully I will stop sounding like nails on a chalkboard relatively soon.
