What is your favorite quote?
"Treat others the way that you want to be treated."
What was your biggest mistake as a first year student? What did you learn from that experience?
My biggest mistake as a first year was probably not having good time management skills. I learned that I need to balance my time evenly between my classes, organizations and social life.
How did you choose your major?
I was an undecided major until the fall of my sophomore year so I was able to take a class in the psychology department and really enjoyed it. I took my time declaring a major and picked one that I really enjoy and am passionate about.
What has been you best experience at BW so far?
Being a Summer Orientation Leader last year. It was so much fun getting to work with the first year students and help prepare them for life at Baldwin Wallace. The experience really helped me to learn about myself and to expand my leadership skills.
What is your favorite spot on campus?
Klein Hall, that is where I lived as a first year student. I have so many great memories and friendships from there.
What movie star would play the role of you in a movie? Why?
That's a hard one! Maybe Rachel McAdams? We have the same name and she is in a lot of my favorite movies.
What was the best advice given to you by your parents or family members during your first year?
To get involved on campus! It is the best way to meet people and form relationships with faculty/staff members.
Step out of your comfort zone!! You will get much more out of your time at BW and learn so much about yourself if you try new things.
