Madison Savarese, 2014
Communication Studies & Sports Management
I wanted a small school because I knew I would be able to get to know the faculty and staff. I have been able to develop a personal relationship with the faculty and they really have helped me become a better student. Being here at UVa-Wise provides me with more leadership opportunities than I would have been able to get at a larger college. Overall, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.
I really enjoy Silver Saber, its great to see all the students come together and show school spirit. I also really like all of the events that the Student Activities Board puts on through out the year: karaoke, comedians, movies and popcorn. There is always something going on!
My favorite class has been English with Dr. Scalia, he assigned readings that were interesting and current. He helped push me to become a better writer and he always enforced that I have a voice and that it should be heard.
