What clubs/organizations are you involved in?

  • IC Futures Club
  • Environmentalists of Ithaca College
  • Sunrise Movement

Have you been engaged in research, internship opportunities, student teaching, or conferences?

I’m currently involved in three research projects. The main project I’m working on involves the presence of microplastics in Cayuga Lake. I’ve gone to five research conferences regarding that work. I’ve also held internships off campus. The two within the Ithaca area include New York State Parks and the Paleontological Research Institute.

Are you involved in IC athletics?

I played club frisbee for a little bit. I’m also involved with intramural volleyball.

What’s your favorite spot on campus and why?

My favorite spots on campus are Towers and the chapel pond. The pond is beautiful, and I love setting up a hammock and reading/hanging out with friends there. Towers is my other pick because I lived there my freshman year and made some of my closest friends. :)

Is there anything else you would want to share with a prospective student?

Ithaca has so much to offer! Don’t forget to explore off campus.
