When she first came to Agnes Scott, she lost her enthusiasm because the campus was empty and quiet. “All I wanted was to go back home in Ghana” said Audrey. However, it was when the International Student Orientation began that she realized where she belonged –“Agnes Scott College!” Audrey says that this orientation was the first thing she loved because it helped her know more about Agnes Scott not just from the internet but from people that were part of it. She was impressed by the formation of small groups she was part of that helped her open up to share all about where she came from and make friends. “This is where I believe my journey started from at Agnes Scott.” Audrey added.
Audrey is impressed by how easy it is to get access to academic materials here that helps her in her educational journey. She loves spending time in the library and exploring all that she finds useful. She enjoys her office hours with her advisor since she never had a chance to have academic advisors before. “Mathavi Strasburger, does the best advising,” says Audrey. Audrey plans to major in Bio-Chemistry and Molecular Biology and she aims to become one of the Scotties that will make the best influence in the world.
Audrey is most excited about her global studies and her leadership class. “I can’t believe that I am going to have a travelling experience in my first year,“Audrey says with a smile on her face. She enjoys her global and leadership classes the most because this is where she first learned about reading and analysis political articles, presentation skills, and different global issues around the world. Not only that, she also discovers small facts about the world that she never heard of like knowing for her first time that coffee was originated from Ethiopia, Africa. During her spring semester, she will travel to Croatia and she is looking forward to learn and have a great experience in this new country.
