Q: How did you end up coming from Vermont 
 to Berea?
A: I was looking into colleges, and I heard about the work-study aspect of Berea, which 
 appealed to me.

Q: What was your involvement with the Deep Green Residence Hall?
A: I helped out with the dorm project mostly by assembling the desks and dressers. This 
 entailed taking all of the pre-made parts and assembling them into the final product. The parts fit together well and did not require 
 much exact measurement to put them in the correct places or much squaring, as we had prepared the parts and designed the furniture so that it would not be necessary to spend 
 tedious minutes fitting every piece together precisely.

Q: What learning opportunities did this present?
A: This was a great learning opportunity for me, as I learned a lot about fitting wood together, working with other people in my workspace, and making a simple, well-built piece of furniture.

Q: What would you tell a prospective student who is considering 
 attending Berea?
A: I would tell a student to expect to have a busy schedule and a demanding workload. But, at the same time, Berea’s a really nice place. Everybody is friendly, and the school has a great reputation.

Q: How would you say you have transformed since first arriving at Berea?
A: Berea has made me more mature and has expanded my viewpoint by exposing me to different opinions and beliefs.

Q: How would you finish this sentence? “I am a Berean because…”
A: “…this is the best opportunity for me to become a more successful and happy individual.”

Q: How will you feel when President Roelofs hands you your diploma?
A: When I graduate, I know I will be very proud of myself.
