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:
Ozone House dance parties, Jackson's Garden, lunch at West Dining Hall
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.
