Favorite quote: "To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." ― Oscar Wilde

Biggest mistake as a first-year student? What did you learn? My biggest mistake was trying to do much. You do not have to join every club and organization, it is okay to say no to people! I learned to only commit myself to a couple of things and make time for my school work and myself.

How did you choose your major? I chose Business and Industrial & Organizational Psychology as my majors. I was interested in both Business and Psychology in high school and luckily BW offered a program that combined both. I also chose my majors because I will be able to use them every day regardless of the career I end up with.

What has been your best experience at BW? My best experience has been joining Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity! Along with joining a fantastic brotherhood that has given me priceless friendships it has also introduced me to so many opportunities on and off campus. I would have never been an orientation leader or be going to a leadership conference in July if it was not for joining Alpha Sigma Phi.

Favorite spot on campus? My favorite spot on campus is Carmel Lawn. When Berea has nice weather it's a great place to hang out with friends, play games, go hammocking, or study.

What is the one thing you want the incoming students to know as they get ready for their summer orientation experience? It is going to be a blast! Be yourself and be prepared to step out of your comfort zone. It's easy to not participate but you will have way more fun if you take the "cool cap" off and give everything a try.

What is one major piece of advice you would give new incoming students to help them succeed in their first year at BW? To get involved! Find something you are passionate about and do it! There is a club for almost everything on campus and if there isn't one you can start it. You will make great friends this way and it will truly enrich your college experience.
