Angela Darnley, '16
Angela Darnley, a current sophomore, came to Muskingum from Canton, Ohio, to major in Accounting, Business Management and Marketing with a minor in Economics.
Angela says, “When I first stepped on Muskingum’s campus for my visit, I immediately felt at home and like it was the place for me. I knew that the smaller campus atmosphere was right for me and it would be the perfect place to spend four years. I knew that I could be very involved within the campus community, while also succeeding academically.”
Angela stays busy as a member of the women’s basketball team, Lambda Sigma Honorary Society and Business Club. I try to be involved with as many volunteer opportunities as possible as well. Angela also spent her spring break in London – traveling, learning and earning six course credits!
Angela says, “There are so many opportunities around campus academically, athletically and socially. I did not expect to be able to work as closely with my professors as I am able to now. I feel that having smaller class sizes has helped me to be successful in the classroom. Being a Fighting Muskie athlete has connected me to so many people. All of the athletes really support each other and I never could have predicted such a strong support system within the Athletic Department. As for the social aspect, there is always something happening around campus. Student Life has really great ways to keep students busy and getting students involved.
“In almost four semesters at Muskingum, I am most thankful for the professors and small class sizes. They are unbelievably helpful and always willing to do what they can to aid in students being successful. I honestly believe that without their availability, I would not be where I have gotten to in these two years. Their work gives students so many opportunities to get involved and do several different things. I have made a lot of friends [in classes], which also helps in being successful in the classroom, since we can all help one another out.”
