WHY I CHOSE WES: 

I chose Wesleyan because I wanted a place where I could completely immerse myself in a diverse environment and student culture; a place where I could follow all my passions as I continued to discover myself in the process. At Wesleyan, people are open and it’s safe to try new things, especially those outside of your comfort zone. Luckily for me, I was able to find my perfect school, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. 

FAVORITE CLASS:

My favorite class so far would have to be Intro to Film Analysis with Professor Dombroski. This class serves as one of the prerequisites for the film program and even though it was the most rigorous class that I took my freshman year, it really allowed me to explore different genres and look at films from numerous perspectives.

CAMPUS
ACTIVITIES:

WESU DJ
Class of 2015 Class Council
Sophomore Film Coalition
Rho Epsilon Pi

WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:

I want to be a tour guide because I love any and every opportunity to show people how Wesleyan is easily the best place to go to school. It’s important that as a tour guide, I’m able to help students figure out whether or not Wesleyan is a good match for them. From experience I can easily say that finally feeling home when you walk on a campus is the best feeling in the world and I want to help students discover that feeling towards Wes. 

FAVORITE MOVIE:

Ever since I’ve taken all these film classes I really have no clue. There are just too many!

FAVORITE SONG:

Chicago by Surfjam Stevens

FUN FACT:

I’m a second degree black belt. Yeah, be afraid.
