Things I really enjoy: Boating and water sports, college football, traveling and experiencing new places, Peanut Butter M&Ms, and spending time with my family and friends.

What not everyone knows about me: I’m afraid of heights, but I love flying!

Favorite College Memory: My favorite memory from college was my experience studying and traveling abroad. I spent a summer semester in Italy learning about the culture, politics, and government abroad. In this short time I made the most incredible memories, ate some of the greatest food, and made some of the best friends of my life!

My Best advice as you are looking at colleges: Keep an open mind, ask a lot of questions, and look at several schools. After all, this is where you are going to spend the next 4 years of your life so you want to make sure you love your school!
