Fletcher Grey

I majored in English Writing. I had a lot of good ideas for the field. I was originally into Philosophy, but I transitioned because Professor Bill Reyer (who is now enjoying retirement) met up with me every other Thursday, and we wrote poetry together.

I chose Heidelberg because the faculty automatically made me feel at home. The first professor I met on campus was Dr. Marc O'Reilly. Not only did he prioritize me as a person and my personal goals, but had remembered me from a tour I completed almost a year prior. This is actually a really long story. I entered majoring in Political Science

A major challenge I encountered while at Heidelberg was getting over some mental hurdles that we’re holding me back and I handled it by praying and talking to someone when I needed help. Above all, Heidelberg prepared me to be able to handle any situation.

I remember coming to Music Preview Day, touring the beautiful campus, and then seeing the Concert Choir perform and thinking, “THIS is where I want to be.” Later on in high school I applied and auditioned at four other schools, but in the back of my mind, I always knew that Heidelberg would be my home.

I chose Heidelberg because of the supportive and personal atmosphere. I toured multiple times and everyone I came in contact with said hello and wanted to get to know me. Before I came to Heidelberg, I knew that I wanted to study Political Science, so I sat in on one of Dr. Marc O’Reilly’s classes. It was an engaging class that got me excited about
