What’s your favorite:

  • Book –  The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

If you could give one piece of advice to the incoming freshman class, what would it be? Make every moment count!  Your four years in college go by a lot faster than you’d think.

What else are you involved in, on or off-campus? Dance, camping and snowmobiling. I also spend a lot of time visiting with friends and family on the north shore. 

What’s your favorite RWU memory? One of my favorite memories is from the blizzard, Nemo which took place during my senior year at RWU. Being snowed in and without electricity was surprisingly fun! My roommates and I camped out in the living room and spent two days sledding around campus and playing games.

Any favorite quotes? “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”  - E.E. Cummings
