Kaitlin Rocha, who will graduate from Brescia in 2014, is currently working, volunteering, studying for the GRE, and preparing for Graduate school, hoping to complete a Master's program in Counselling Psychology. Her experience in Rwanda was part of an International Service Learning project offered as part of a course entitled, Rwanda: Culture, Society and Reconstruction.

"Playing a sport at Agnes Scott College allowed me to travel, not only the southeast, but also the northeast, midwest, and west coast. But the most important part of my experience playing basketball at the DIII level was my teammates. They will always be a part of me, from my Scottie Sister my first-year to my co-captains my senior year. A little-known fact about the 2011-12 team was their extreme potential to go on tour as the a cappella group, The Scottie Whisperers."
The West was wild, and for the most part, the frontier unsettled when Col. Richard Gentry called together Columbia’s 14 leading male citizens on Aug. 24, 1833, to discuss the education of their daughters at the Columbia Female Academy. Years later, James L. Stephens endowed the College with $20,000, and the institution was renamed the Stephens Female College.
Points of pride
