Why did you choose Coker? I chose Coker because of the small campus environment. The close-knit community and professor interaction were second-to-none. I love that everyone is hospitable and the professors know you by your name and not a number.
What is your best memory at Coker (athletic related)? My best memory would be our overtime victory against Carson-Newman last season during the SAC-Conference Carolinas Challenge. We had a lot of injured players going into the game, but we fought hard and played great to pick up the win on a buzzer-beater by Hailey Yohn.
What is your best memory at Coker (non-athletic related)? During the Taste of Coker a large group of students came together and just socialized and enjoyed each other’s company. It was really neat to be a part of that moment.
Which athletic team would you play on at Coker other than your own? Women’s lacrosse
