Voorhees College Reviews
I'm a freshman at VoorheesCollege, about to go into my second semester. Majority of my family, has attended VoorheesCollege. It's a great school, one of the best in South Carolina. VoorheesCollege so far, has really been like another home for me. Everyone knows each other, and it's a religious school. Which that's a good thing, because my major is Theological Studies. I just love the annual Chapel services, that are held every Tuesday. Also singing on the great VoorheesCollege Gospel Choir is a joy in itself. After graduation, I plan to become a Pastor and start my own church. By the grace of God, many people will be touched and saved by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Voorhees has all the necessary tools, that will help me achieve this goal. God has already network me, with many people in the same field I'm achieving to do. It's a homey environment, a small but effective community. VoorheesCollege where we BeginBelieveBecome.
First, my experience in college has given me a chance to sharpen my skills in my field of choice. There have been, and there will continue to be, many opportunities to learn more ways of improving my craft as a result of my time in school, which I am truly thankful for. I had always wanted to know more about psychology since I have found the human mind and how it works and develops very interesting.College is a lot different than high school.The first thing you’ll notice is the workload. In the long-term, I’m looking forward to continued learning. I feel like I have grown and learned a lot recently, but there’s so much I still want to learn and experience. I believe there is a connection between living and learning: if we fail to learn, we aren’t truly living. Therefore, I want to keep learning and challenging myself whenever possible.
Voorhees is a 4 year college that is actually there to help. It is a small college that makes you feel at home. They are very friendly from the students to the faculty and staff. From education to professional to even personal they are willing to give a helping hand. The only thing I would change at Voorhees is the living. The dorms aren't the most up to date ones, but you can get comfortable!
