NU SWORD, Twin Approved

Northwood Texas Twins, Maria and Anna Joseph

CEDAR HILL, Texas – At first glance you may think you are seeing double.  Meet Northwood University Texas Knights and student leaders Maria and Anna Joseph.  If you have attended the Student Welcome, Orientation and Registration Day (SWORD) you may have noticed that the first two people that greet you when you enter the Lambert building are the twins Maria and Anna Joseph.  They welcome each new Knight that comes through the door with a warm Texas smile.

“I would encourage every new student to attend SWORD,” said Anna Joseph. “You learn so much during the event you don’t want to miss it,” she continued.  They were both introduced to Northwood University by Admissions Counselor, Phylecia Boomhower at the College Expo in Belton, TX.

“Phylecia was so nice and so was everyone on campus.  We just feel in love with Northwood,” said Maria Joseph.

Maria is a marketing major with a concentration in entrepreneurship and Anna is an accounting major. The twins also shared that they love volunteering and that is what urged them to become student leaders and assist with Northwood University, Texas SWORD.
