Life at Wittenberg
Graduation Year: 2004
Minor: Africana Studies
Athletics: Soccer, Basketball, Track and Field
Most Helpful Courses: I really enjoyed the senior capstone class in which we learned about the mathematicians as well as the math. As far as what do I use the most in my everyday life, I have often fallen back on the introductory coding that I learned in the mandatory computer science class for math majors. But for me, the most helpful classes were all of them. They taught me logic and a way of thinking and problem solving that has helped me in every aspect of my personal and professional life.
Courses You Wish You Would’ve Taken: I wish that I had a better understanding of what jobs a Math major could lead you to. I was under the impression you could either be a teacher or an actuary, and there is a whole world for us math kids out there!
Most Helpful Experiences: Through my educational and athletic interests, Wittenberg took me all over the country and even to China and South Africa! There was no replacing the opportunity to experience other cultures and learn with students from around the world.
