In her time at Wilmington College, Alicia has been highly involved in Residential Life, Greek Life, and more. She has held many leadership positions, which includes an RA position in Denver her sophomore year, an employee for the Sexual Assault Hotline for two years, and the Vice President and now President of DTS Lil Sis. She has participated in three lobby trips to Washington D.C. through the school.
Along with involvement on campus, Alicia had worked a career services job for three years and worked full-time at a daycare, all while being a student.
During the spring semester, Alicia will be looking at a full-time job in probation. After graduation, she would like a full-time job in the court system for six months with the end goal of attending law school and becoming a prosecutor.
“The thing I like most about WC is the local roots,” says Alicia. “I found a sorority that’s local, small and agricultural that I’ve grown around. Wilmington is a place to come back and has become my home.”

“My best experience has been being able to get to know some many new people because of the small campus,” says Andrew. “I have been able to genuinely connect with people. The friendships I have made while at Wilmington College are unlike any other.”

“The best advice I can give to underclassmen is don’t be afraid to ask for help,” Andrew says. “Whether you ask family, a friend, an academic advisor, a coach, a professor, or a faculty/staff member, there is always someone who is going to be able and willing to help you with whatever problems you are having.”
