Favorite memory from Orientation:
My favorite memory from orientation was when we played the “touch game.” Which is an activity where everyone has their eyes closed & prompts are read & select people tap anyone they believe the prompt applies to. For example, “this person makes me laugh” and other kind affirmations. I was filled with so much love after the activity, I knew I was in the right place after that. 

One piece of advice you have for incoming students:
Everything is going to work out and always give yourself grace. Going into college is a huge transition, but you’re going to accomplish great things! Believe in yourself because so many people already do. 

One thing you are looking forward to most this summer:
I am looking forward to all the new connections I’m going to make this summer!
