Ashley Haywood: It Is What It Is

Have you ever wanted to get to know the gals behind Her Campus Millersville? Now’s your opportunity! Meet Ashley Haywood, our fabulous secretary and fellow #bosslady!

Name: Ashley Haywood

Age: 22

Birthday: February 2nd, 1994

Year: Senior (finally)!

Hometown: Virginia Beach, Virginia

Major: English

Why did you pick your major?

English was always my favorite subject in school and I failed math twice

Why did you pick Millersville University?

I originally didn’t even want to go to Millersville, I went to Bloomsburg first. But my first semester there was less than fun and I missed my family a lot so I decided to come back and give MU a try. Now I wish I picked going here from the start!

As a Her Campus member, why do you love Her Campus?

I love the connections I’ve made with all the girls and the lasting friendships. Every girl is so supportive and genuine and I think that’s something everyone needs in a friend group! My MU Her Campus girls are seriously the best group of girls anyone could have as friends!


How do you hope Her Campus will help your future?

I’m hoping that I can use the communication skills I’ve learned to my advantage. I used to be so shy but now I can talk to almost anyone with no problem!

What advice do you have for future students at Millersville University?

Get involved in clubs! Whether that be Her Campus, a sorority or fraternity, or any other club that sparks your interest, do it. You make so many friends and it makes transitioning as a freshman so much easier. You also get involved in events on campus which also gets you more involved with the university. 

How do you stay organized?

My Lilly Pulitzer planner. I don’t know where I’d be with out it. Also I keep a lot of notes, reminders, and calendar events in my phone juuuuust in case I can’t grab my planner right away. 

If you had to pick a favorite professor, who would it be? Why?

Dr. Carla Rineer. I’ve had her for two classes and I think she’s a fantastic professor. You learn so much from her and she really challenges you to think and participate in class discussions (even if I’m not a pro at doing that). She’s also hilarious, so that helps too! 

What is your life quote?

“It is what it is.”

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Oh God, there’s too many colors to pick! Maybe coral… Or gold… Or pink? 

If you were stranded on an island, what/who would you take with you? Name 3 things.

Sunblock, a genie, and a Dunkin Donuts
