The Loving Support – I came To Voorhees College because it has evrything I needed. Im from Nasville, TN and I'm use to a big city. Voorhees is in a small town that help me stay foucsed on my school work while also,staying dedicated and determind on the softball feild and basketball court. Voorhees has a student support center and toutors for free. Thats always avalibe to help me if im stuggling in the class room. The two big things I love about voorhees college is the classes are little so I can imbrasse alot more and they have a great mass communications program! Ever sents I stepped foot on their campas they have treated me like family.

Voorhees has several fields of studies. Voorhees offers a Bachelors of science in Biology, Childhood Education, Criminal Justice, Psychology, Business Adminstration, and Accounting. The biology field is very challenging and constructive. My professor Dr.Ward is a wonderful teacher who pushing me and makes me think critically. This year I have three classes because I took a work load my freshman and sophmore year, but I still have plenty work. The classes I'm registered in are, cell biology, epidemology and senior seminar, which I love very much. Voorhees Science department could be much better if we had more lab eqiupment.

The biology department at Voorhees College has been a blessing to me. I love science and I enjoy learning about various subjects with in the biology field. The chair of this department , also known as Dr. Doris Ward has given me opportunities that I may have never gotten. She has help me get internships to New Mexico State Univeristy for two summers doing various research. She gives out stipends for students that maintain 3.0 gpa and higher. She allows us to go to other school and present research that we have done. This fields requires a lot of work and determination. Some of the curriculms are: General Chemistry 1 and 2, Ogranic Chemistry 1 and 2, Physics 1 and 2, Genetics, Zoology, Botany, Microbiology, Cell Biology, Epidemology, and Ecology.
