What clubs/organizations you are involved in on campus?

I am a part of VIC Radio where I host a regular shift, a specialty show, and a sports show. I also write for The Ithacan and I’m a member of the Club Fencing team!

Have you studied abroad or in LA or NYC? 

I have not, but I hope to study in New York in the future!


Are you involved in IC athletics? 

I’m a member of the club fencing team! It’s a great club that accepts people of all experience levels to learn, practice, and improve. We also sometimes host tournaments on campus, or travel to nearby schools to participate in other tournaments.

Why did you choose Ithaca College?

I picked Ithaca for a bunch of reasons, but one of the biggest ones was because of the awesome opportunities Park offered. My major has very few required classes, so I get to control most of what I take and I can essentially design my degree. Plus, ICTV, radio, and The Ithacan are great ways of getting professional-level experience as a college student. The other big reason was just the feel of the campus and the community. It felt like it was a place where I could always be comfortable with who I am, which was very important to my college decision.

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

Sign up for as much as you can right at the beginning of college! The earlier you get involved with things the better, and you can always choose to stop participating in things if you don’t have the time. And branch out, do things that you don’t know anything about!
