Meet your 2017 New Student Orientation Coordinators:
Raven is a second-year student who is pleased to welcome you to the Wake Div community! She chose to attend Wake Div because of her compassion for people and passion for learning. She is an alumna of East Carolina University and grew up in Kannapolis, North Carolina. She loves sunshine, trees, dogs, yoga, food, and WATER! Raven is also an only child so pay her no mind when her only child syndrome starts showing — she’s just spoiled!
If there was anything that she thinks is essential to know before you begin this journey it is to understand that “it takes courage to live through suffering and it takes honesty to observe it.”
Hailing from San Diego, California, you’d be surprised to know Chris has never surfed and is not the biggest fan of the beach. Instead, he can usually be found indoors playing video games, singing, or (occasionally) playing sports. Chris is a second-year student who has found himself in an entirely new environment. The community has welcomed this “liberal nerd” (as he has labeled himself) into their midst and challenged him in many positive ways. Chris is an alumni of the University of Redlands and is currently working as a Youth Pastor at G3 Church, a local United Methodist congregation.
If there was anything that he thinks is essential to know before you begin this journey it would be to stop and take in how exciting this moment is. You are coming to an amazing school and have worked so hard to get here!
