I am from the small town of Loudon, in east Tennessee.
I chose East Tennessee State University for a number of reasons.
I love the outdoors and the beauty of the mountains in ETSU's backyard.
The professors and faculty I dealt with made it very obvious that I was a priority.
ETSU is located only about three hours from my hometown, making it the perfect mix of far enough away, but not too far away.
They also offered me a scholarship I could not refuse.
At ETSU I am double majoring in Mass Communications, with a concentration in Advertising and Public Relations, and Communication Studies.
