Radford University Orientation | Quest




Whew, it has been a crazy few weeks!! With multiple sessions, two weddings, Jasmine’s workshop AND college orientation in the past month…I’ve been super busy!! (And I head to NYC in two days for my 18th birthday…what!?) But, after spending the last two days at Radford University for Quest (orientation) I am SOOO excited for the next chapter of my life at RU. I got to tour the campus, hear all about what classes I can take, learn all about my major and the brand new COBE building (college of business and economics), meet tons of amazing friends (even network with a few photogs!) and, of course, pick up some new Raddy gear 🙂

I got to register for all of my first semester classes, and I cannot wait to start working towards my Marketing major and Entrepreneurship minor. Radford’s newest building is the GORGEOUS business building (also known as COBE) and it is just jaw-dropping!! I cannot wait to spend my next four years here! And, the best news is that I only have class Monday-Thursday, which leaves tons of time to come home and shoot sessions on weekends!! WOOHOO! So pumped to start booking fall/winter sessions!!

AND-if you’re a current student at Radford OR Virginia Tech, and you are interested in booking a fall/winter session, feel free to contact me!! Students get a special discounted rate!

Enjoy some iphone shots of my amazing orientation below! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend 🙂
