Ambassador Profile: Christopher East
Which professors have been your favorites? Why?
My favorite professor is Pat Ross. He is a professor in the science department. He does a fantastic job of pushing me to be the best student I can be, and to do my best in everything.
You know you’re at SC when…
It is amazing to walk onto campus when you can just talk to anyone and can tell they care about you. It feels like they are your brother and sister, which is such a cool part of the Builder family. We all have each other’s back and are super supportive of each other.
Why did you choose SC?
I chose Southwestern because of the family atmosphere. I am from Texas, and I was ready to get out of Texas and go somewhere else for a few years. The campus is beautiful, and the academics are outstanding. I learned about the school because of the soccer program, but when I came on my visit I could see how great of a school it truly is.
What would surprise your high school friends about you now?
My high school friends would be completely surprised. I am a different person then I was when I left Texas. My maturity has grown as well as my value on life. I can see myself succeeding throughout the rest of my life after graduating from Southwestern.
What are your interests and hobbies?
Soccer is my main interest. However, I enjoy all sports. In my spare time I like to hunt, take photos, draw, and even participate in extreme sports. My goal after graduating is to become a surgeon, and I am very interested in the medical field and learning all it has to offer.
What surprised you about SC?
They all talked about the Builder family when I came to campus. I was surprised when I got to campus and actually saw that we truly are a family here at Southwestern.
