Why did you choose Dalton State? I chose Dalton State because it was far enough from home to “get away,” yet close enough to have visitors. And besides, I was tired of living in the city.
What do you plan to do after graduation? I would really love to teach kindergarten.
What activities are you involved in on campus? Over the summer, I was a part of the Orientation Team. Now that school is in, I am working in the Game Room and volunteering with CAB.
