Deciding on Sociology

After taking the "Intro to Sociology" class, I was interested in learning more. This curiosity turned into a real desire to learn more. I've always been fascinated by human interaction and the dynamics of it.

My EPPS Success

I attribute part of my success in EPPS to good writing skills. There's a lot of writing in sociology and this ability has come in handy. Additionally, every class is interesting in its own way, which makes you want to learn. Many of my friends are jealous that I actually have interesting things to talk about from class.

Plans for the Future

I plan to work for the company OnlineSkillsCoach.com. I also plan to continue coaching. Currently, I coach quarterbacks in football and coach baseball as well.

Advice to Prospective EPPS Students

Try a sociology class — there are many different types and at least one should interest you. College is a long tough process, so you might as well enjoy what you're learning about.

Other Interests

In my free time, I enjoy working out and playing golf.
