Favorite quote: “Effort = Opportunity”

Biggest mistake as a first-year student? What did you learn? I got involved in seven different organizations and didn't put effort into school because high school was a breeze. There are no retakes as a college student. Make a pros and cons list to see what you are truly passionate about, and stick with it.

How did you choose your major? I chose my major because it will open the most amount of doors after I graduate, and I still don't know what I want to do.

What has been your best experience at BW? Being a student ambassador and experiencing the alumni celebration. I was able to meet 20 different alumni brothers of my fraternity and create connections that I will never forget.

Favorite spot on campus? Carmel Lawn. It's big and open with a lot of foot-traffic, which makes for great Ultimate Frisbee.

Best piece of advice given to you? Meet as many people as you can so that you can be in the loop and involved in a little of everything

One thing you want the incoming students to know as they get ready for their summer orientation experience? Come with an open mind. This experience is unlike any other. To make it the best experience, you can't compare it to anything else.
