Hometown: Herkimer, N.Y.
The campus was beautiful, Union has a great reputation, and I was offered a great financial aid package.
Most inspiring class:
Professor Jarrin’s Medical Anthropology class included truly insightful readings that made me think about different forms of healthcare and led me to Chinese medicine.
Also excited about:
My biology class, "Vertebrate Natural History," which includes morning bird-watching excursions; and two history classes, "The Holocaust" and "Mystics, Magic and Witchcraft in Medieval and Early Modern Europe"
Head resident advisor in College Park Hall, work-study in the Office of Residential Life, snowboarding with Ski Club
Favorite study spot:
Third floor of the Nott Memorial
Three things I'm passionate about at Union:
Photography, Rubik's Cubes, reading, creative writing, music and music festivals, Wes Anderson movies, making blankets and clothes, bike riding
Most surprising thing about Union:
You don't need to be affiliated with the Greek System to have fun and be part of the Union community.
How I’m making Union better:
I like to think that I've made Union a better place by promoting community and individuality in the residence halls.
Looking into the future:
After graduation, I'll begin a four-year master's degree program at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco to become a licensed acupuncturist.
Advice for incoming students:
Embrace who you are and what you are passionate about, no matter what everyone else is doing.
