Zachary Lowe followed in his family's footsteps by attending Bethany, but he is making his own mark at the College by working hard and being involved.
Sophomore Zachary Lowe is from Jacksonville, Florida, but he considers Bethany his second home.

“When I came back this fall, I felt as if I’d never left. Seeing my friends again was one of the greatest feelings I’ve had.

"Being a triple legacy here at Bethany, it really feels as if this is my second home. My mom and dad grew up here, and I visited family members up here from the time that I was one year old. I’ve passed under that Bethany green bridge so many times, and every time I do it just feels like I’m back. This place has given me so much and will continue to give
       me many memories to come.”

His dad and grandfather both attended Bethany. So did multiple aunts, uncles and cousins. But he’s determined to make his own mark at Bethany. Zach is sophomore Class President, a brother of Alpha Sigma Phi, a Kalon Scholar, a Student Ambassador at the Bethany College Office of Enrollment, Student-Athlete Advisory Committee representative for the football team, as well as the long snapper for the football team.

Q&A:

What’s one thing no Bethany student should miss? Greek Life. Go Greek! I will never forget walking out of the building and seeing my new brothers yelling when they saw me and the rest of my pledge class for the first time. I will also never forget watching the girls run up Greek hill. Honestly Greek life is awesome and gives you a connection with people that not many people know. Everyone that joins a house loves it, so I implore you to try it out.

How did you spend your summer? I interned at Cole, Scott & Kissane, P.A. in Jacksonville. I was able to help attorneys with case research and was able to use an online law database called WestLaw. I also attended many hearings, depositions, and countless meetings between clients and attorneys.

What’s one thing you wish you knew as a freshman? I wish I knew how important it is to call home. Don’t forget to call mom every now and then. She worries.

What is the most difficult thing about college? The amount of down time. It’s very easy to get lazy in college and sleep through classes or just be uninvolved, but the solution is to simply go out and get involved. Stay busy! Join clubs and go let your voice be heard. Meet new people and make new friends! Go to the Library often.
