Q: What about Cleveland State University most intrigues you?
A: The beautiful campus and a great atmosphere are what intrigues me.

Q: What is your major going to be and how is Cleveland State University’s program for that major?
A: My major is Criminology, CSU has a great criminology program working alongside city police and the FBI headquarters which is in Cleveland. All this will give me great knowledge and prepare me for when I begin my career in law enforcement.

Q: What led you to choose West Virginia University?

Q: What about Shippensburg University most intrigues you?
A: For me, the best part of Ship is their campus. It has a very modern feel to it, and overall it’s a very well maintained place.
Q: What led you to choose Shippensburg University?
A: For me, it came down to the baseball program. Unlike most schools, they keep a small baseball roster, which would give me more playing time. One college I was talking to said they kept 50+ athletes on their roster, verses the 25 athletes Shippensburg has on the team.
Q: What is your major going to be and how is Shippenburg’s program for that major?
A: I will be studying business. If I’m not mistaken, Ship has the same business accreditation as many if the larger schools in the country, so that’s pretty nice.
