Student Spotlight

Lorenzo McKenzie '15

Lorenzo McKenzie, Class of 2015
Mass Communications/TV & Multimedia

When applying for college in the U.S., there were many choices, but Methodist University stood out the most. Coming from the Bahamas, I was a bit apprehensive at first, but the warm and welcoming environment was very engaging for international students. There are people here who are concerned about your educational and personal success. The professors have real-world experience and the classes are small. As a rising junior, I can truly say it was the right choice to come here.

At Methodist, I have been involved in leadership development. I have learned about effective leadership skills through the Lura S. Tally Center for Leadership Development, as well as attending various conferences and workshops. I have been a part of Student Leaders at Methodist, which prepared me for leadership on campus during my freshman year. I am also part of the Monarch Leaders Program, which has guided me into becoming a well-rounded student.

I can say the most enjoyable part of my MU journey has been acting as a First Year Experience Resident Assistant. I have been able to guide first year students and orient them into college life. It’s a rewarding feeling when you see unassuming freshmen develop into promising upperclassmen. I really enjoy offering advice and having open discussions with students.
