What is your favorite place on campus?
I love visiting the St. Francis statue near Allison Mansion. We’re friends.
What do you like best about Indianapolis?
I love the different communities that make up Indianapolis. Even though Broad Ripple, Irvington, Speedway, and others are relatively close to one another, they maintain their own uniqueness in terms of people, entertainment, and food. There is always something for everyone!
Who would you rather have for a roommate—a zombie, a vampire, a gremlin, or bigfoot?
Where would you most like to visit?
Any of the Caribbean Islands.
What is a favorite memory of your time at Marian University?
Seeing my name and my teammates’ names posted as national finalists at a huge speech tournament junior year. We never had that many national finalists in our team’s existence before. Hard work paying off and making Marian University history all at the same time.
What advice would you offer to incoming freshmen?
Take as many AP or dual credit courses as possible if they are offered. Classes in college can get expensive, and the more credit hours you come in with the more learning opportunities there are outside the classroom.
What is one question that every student should ask during the college search?
Internships are the best way to get real-world experience. I would encourage students to think even further into the future and ask themselves, “Will there be plenty of internship opportunities for me in my field of interest here?”
