Education: I graduated from WJU in 2016 with Ignatian honors, a degree in Communications, and a minor in English.

Favorite Aspect of WU: I love the community and feeling on campus. I love that I can walk around and see people I know and that returning as an employee gave me the same feeling as stepping onto campus as a freshman: excitement and belonging.

Favorite Spot on Campus: The ARC (Academic Resource Center) or the Kiosk (on-campus coffee shop).

Favorite Local Spot: Since I'm not from Wheeling, I don't go many places around the city, but I enjoy driving through downtown!

Advice for Prospective Students: Make friends with your RA. Not only can they help you with roommate problems or issues with your dorm, but they're older students who can dish out life advice and homework help and it's always good to have the RA's as your friends.
