Brianna Rosson

Psychology major Brianna Rosson came to Lee from Stuttgart, Germany. According to Brianna, the most compelling component in coming to Lee was the unique environment, where the professors were teaching from a Christian perspective while still holding true to critical thinking, along with their caring attitude for the students. “The best experience so far is to see personal growth in myself and in my fellow students and meeting my roommate who is now one of my closest friends,” Brianna shares.
