Taylor Carter

Lewisburg, W.Va.

Concord’s education department was what initially drew Taylor Carter to the university, but like many freshmen, that major changed once she started taking classes. Taylor says she realized teaching wasn’t for her, but she really loved the geography classes she was taking. Now, Taylor is a Political Science and Geography double major. Her interest in politics lead to her involvement in SGA, and she is currently the president of that organization. Taylor is also in Pi Sigma Alpha, the political science honor society, and Phi Alpha Delta, Concord’s pre-law fraternity. Concord’s small size was another factor in Taylor’s decision to come to Athens. During her time here, she says a smaller campus allowed her to explore a number of ways to get involved and feel known. “Once you find your niche at Concord, you’ll never want to leave,” Taylor says.
