From an early age, Rebekah knew that Baylor was where she wanted to spend her college years. Both of Rebekah's parents graduated from Baylor and so she grew up visiting campus. "I grew up knowing about all the amazing traditions and wanting to be part of those traditions as a student."
She got involved in the Baylor community by participating in Freshman Class Council, joining a sorority, and getting involved with organizations with the business school. One of her favorite experiences as a Baylor student was studying abroad with the Baylor in Maastricht program. While abroad for the semester, Rebekah and her friends visited 16 different European countries.
As a business student, Rebekah's favorite academic experience was participating in the BEST program (Business Excellence Scholarship Team). She especially liked the interactive and hands-on nature of the class. Her class was able to meet with entrepreneurs from all over the world and included a class trip to Prague.
Rebekah encourages prospective students to find a school that's a great fit for you. "Don't just follow your friends from high school, but really try to find a school that is right for you. Your friends from high school will still be there, but allow yourself to make the most of your college experience and meet new people."
