The Bulldog Connection

The National Association of Colleges and Employers states that 98% of employers deem teamwork/collaboration essential to new hires, therefore the Career Development office is “Building Bulldogs” to enhance skills in the top four career readiness competencies such as critical thinking/problem solving, teamwork/collaboration, professionalism/work ethic and oral/written communications through Tennessee Wesleyan’s Bulldog Connections Quality Enhancement Plan.

What is the Bulldog Connection?

Meet Ms. Candy Maddux
Director of Career Development

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman

I am a very open, fun-loving and compassionate person raised in a community similar to Athens. There was a sense of home when I visited the campus, and I knew I would fit right in. In my journey of higher education, I have found that every student that I come in contact with deserves the opportunity to succeed. I often tell my students, it doesn’t matter where you come from, but how you finish. Your education can never be taken from you. – DeLunda “Candy” Maddux

TWU prepares students with the transformative experience and to be well-rounded leaders who make a positive impact on the world.
