Why I chose Bluffton University:

I chose Bluffton University because I wanted to be a part of a small, close-knit community where the opportunities for greatness and success were constant.  At Bluffton I had the opportunity to continue my basketball career at the collegiate level, as well as get involved with other extracurricular activities (such as the multi-cultural affairs club and live commentating of Bluffton University football games on the radio).


The initial process of visiting colleges made me very nervous; however, from the moment I entered Bluffton's campus I knew that this was the place for me.  One of the main factors that played a major role into me knowing that Bluffton was right for me was the individuals who were already a part of the Bluffton community.  The people of the Bluffton community are very caring and are consistent in assisting both the future and current residents of their community succeed.


Attending Bluffton University was one of the best decisions that I have ever made and I am dedicated in assisting Bluffton maintain and expand the success and achievements that this university has upheld for years.
