What advice would you give to other Brevard
College students (and future graduates)?
Enjoy your time at Brevard and don’t be
afraid to try something new.
Plan ahead of time.
Make the most of this area that our school
is planted in. The campus may be small, but
it’s backyard is filled with some of the most
amazing opportunities- Pisgah National
Forest, DuPont State Forest, and more are
Keep track of your course requirements.
Don’t rush yourself Take your time and
enjoy the journey. Brevard College has so
much to offer. Also, explore Pisgah.
Get outside! Brevard is beautiful!
Learn a new skill/take a skill based class
that you may not be familiar with.
The best advice I could give is to live in the
moment and never say no to a trip to Waffle
Enjoy every moment, time goes by quick.
Take advantage of everything you have.
All the friends you can meet, connections
you can make, professors and other staff to
build relationships with, activities and events
offered, the community around and outside of
campus and so many other things. If you do
that, BC will become a great experience for
you and possibly even a second home, as it
was and has become for me.
My advice to the ones after me is to reach
out and create friends as you go because
there’s strength in numbers. We’re all in this
thing together, so why not enjoy it and meet a
few great people along the way.
Enjoy the time that you have while you are
here, it will go by quick.

This was when our soccer team qualified for the ECAC tournament in Maryland back in November 2018! We
got to tour Washington DC in our very little free time. It was an experience I’ll cherish forever! (Courtesy of
Always complete your work for your classes
but don’t get consumed in it. Make time to
go out and explore with your friends! Also,
don’t be afraid to ask anything from your
professors, that’s what they’re there for.
My first piece of advice is to be friendly
with your professors. This is especially for
the professors that teach the classes for your
major. At a small college we can actually
make those connections with peers and
faculty! Stop by their offices just to say hi.
Keep things professional, obviously, but
you never know how much you could have
in common or how awesome some of your
professors are until you talk to them. I might
be biased but I think the English professors
My second piece of advice is make your gen
ed classes work for you. Sometimes it feels
like there’s no interesting class or you feel
like you won’t learn anything beneficial. This
isn’t the case! I was an English major and
every gen ed I chose gave me some sort of
creative inspiration. I took Astronomy because
I figured I would need some knowledge
of space to write science-fiction. I took
Art Appreciation to see how other creative
individuals told a story or expressed an idea
through a different medium. I even minored in
Psychology because I’m fascinated in human
behavior and want to portray that through
my work. I could go on and on, but the fact
is that there are so many interdisciplinary
connections out there so pick a gen ed you
think will boost your passion for your major
further. Have fun and learn all you can!
Make friends and attend all the events
hosted at the school you won’t regret it!

Your professors are there to help you
succeed. Don’t be afraid to reach out the
various resources available on campus if
you’re struggling. The faculty and staff at
Brevard genuinely care about you as a human
first and a student second.
