Ashley Smith, Appalachian State University
“If I could change one thing about the world, it would be the amount of technology we use. We’re a digital age, but there’s no need for the excess amount. Texting while driving (or using any social media) is really a danger to everyone around you, including yourself. There’s a time and place for texting and using social media, but being behind the wheel is not one of them.”
Lexi Poborsky, Washington State University
“WSU is always a party, the whole Greek community is so close, and the Palouse is one of the most beautiful areas of Washington State.”
Kelsi Rooks, University of Toledo
“I’m going to be Miss COED 2017 because who wouldn’t want to be Miss COED 2017? I love my University and show pride in it every chance I get. I don’t think there is a better person at my University to represent Miss COED 2017!”
Kaylee Gorey, University of Southern Maine
“I major in Natural and Applied Sciences with a concentration in K-8 Education. I would like to become an elementary School teacher.”
Bridgett Church, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
“When I was in 8th grade, I visited UTC with my brother who was touring the school. When we finished the tour, I told my mom that I would be going to school here. When it came time to fill out college applications, UTC was the only school I wanted to apply for. I knew I was making a risk because it was going to be more expensive, but I knew I would be happy here. As a sophomore, I don’t regret that decision at all. I love everything about UTC. I love the school spirit that roams around the city and I love how this school is a growing community. The parking may be awful, but being a Moc makes it all worth it.”
