Why I Give: Christina Hua ’11

Christina Hua ’11

Why did you decide to attend the College?

I was born and raised in China, and I had always wanted to pursue higher education in the United States. I learned about Randolph through reading about the American author Pearl S. Buck, who lived in my hometown Huai’an when she first moved to China. As I researched Randolph College, I became drawn to its broad liberal arts education, exceptional faculty, and close-knit community.

What did your education and experiences at the College mean to you?

My education and experiences at Randolph College were truly life-changing. The rigorous liberal arts education helped me learn how to read critically, write cogently, and think broadly through exploring issues and ideas across the humanities, arts, and sciences. As a non-native English speaker, I appreciated the College’s focus on writing skills and the assistance provided by the Writing Lab. This training helped me become one of the best writers in my class at Columbia University, where I later earned my master’s degrees in psychology and strategic communications.

How did your experiences at the College prepare you for life after graduation?

The liberal arts education I received at Randolph prepared me for life after graduation and success in my career in management consulting. I learned to think critically and write clearly, and I was challenged to consider not only how to solve problems, but also which problems to solve and why. These skills are essential for success in any field, but they are especially valuable in management consulting, where the ability to think strategically and creatively is essential.

What does it mean to you to be a leadership supporter and member of the Conway Society?

I give to Randolph because I am forever grateful for the financial support the College gave me and the opportunities it afforded me. I believe it is my responsibility to give back so that Randolph can continue to educate and inspire future generations.

What are your favorite memories?

I have many fond memories of Randolph, from the Odd class traditions to the gorgeous campus behind the Red Brick Wall. I made lifelong friends and had the opportunity to work with wonderful professors who went above and beyond to help me learn and grow. My mind was expanded exponentially, and my life truly became Vita abundantior.
