What is one piece of advice you have for students who are choosing a college?

Visit! There is no better way to see if you can feel comfortable at a college or university than to see it for yourself! Also, be open minded. If you think you want one thing because it feels comfortable, remember that college is about taking risks, figuring out who you are, and learning what you are passionate about. Challenge yourself!

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

My favorite place on campus is outside of Ballantine Hall during the change of classes. It sounds silly, but I love standing there and watching all of the students leaving class, walking to class, chatting, and riding bikes. That spot, in my opinion, is the heart of the campus!
