The mountains normally attract people due to the serenity and wonderful times they provide. That and more convinced Kristen Childers, a senior at Western Carolina University, to travel just shy of four hours from Greensboro to Cullowhee for her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, which she will receive in May.

Childers said she chose Western Carolina because it provided all the things she was looking for.

“I love the mountains and the art program caught my attention, plus my favorite color is purple and I adore cats,” she said.

Madeline Moore is from Greensboro, NC. She is a junior at Western Carolina University double-majoring in English and Religion, but she was unsure what college she wanted to go to during high school.

“After visiting Western I fell in love with the campus,” she said. “WCU wasn’t my first choice, but I’m really glad it’s where I ended up.”

Even after attending Western Carolina for three years, Moore’s opinion has scarcely changed.

A familiar face around The Western Carolinian office is that of Jordan Freeman, Junior Editor for the publication. Previously a student at Forsyth Technical Community College in Winston-Salem, Freeman wanted to find a top-notch university at which to complete a four-year English degree. After careful research and a fateful visit with a friend (now peer), he chose to settle in the mountains. He now majors in professional writing here at Western Carolina University while working on his first full-length novel.
