Meet a Wise Student

Madison Savarese '14

Communication Studies & Sports Management, Winchester, VA

Why UVa-Wise? 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.

Favorite Events? 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!

Favorite Class/Professor? 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.
