What is your favorite part about GSW?

I love that it's a small campus, so I'm always around familiar faces.

What is your favorite memory or experience you've had at GSW?

I got to study abroad last summer in Bulgaria with 7 other GSW students, and it was incredible. One weekend we visited Thassos, Greece, and two other students and I bought gyros and Greek pastries and took a tour of the island by boat. It was really one of the neatest experiences ever.

What is your major? What degree will you recieve upon graduation?

General Studies with minors in Art, Marketing and Media & Communications

Why did you choose your major?

I couldn’t pick a favorite professor!

What is your favorite class? Why?

My favorite class I’ve taken at GSW was Survey of Art History II. It was one of the most challenging classes ever, but it was also so thought provoking and relevant. I love being able to look at artwork and architecture and know a little bit about the intentions behind it.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Go to the beach, see shows and concerts and travel

Fun fact about you?

I don’t like to watch scary movies, but I love reading scary books!

What advice would you give incoming freshmen?

Take care of yourself! It’s so easy to get 100% overwhelmed in school, so make sure to take breaks and find healthy ways to relieve stress. It’s ok to say “no” to events and tasks sometimes!
