WHY I CHOSE WES: 

Wesleyan’s campus is pulsing with a creative energy that I didn’t find anywhere else. Students are excited to learn, collaborate, share, and be themselves. You get rigorous academics in a liberating atmosphere. Also, food’s great. 

ACADEMIC
INTERESTS:

I’m drawn to interdisciplinary study and crossing boundaries between fields. At Wesleyan I get to fuse my artistic and academic interests by taking awesome classes in subjects and creative mediums that interest me. It’s exciting to see topics I study in one class inform the work I do in another. 

FAVORITE CLASS:

Advanced Playwright’s Workshop with Quiara Alegria Hudes. She won the Pulitzer Prize literally in the middle of one of our classes. 

CAMPUS
ACTIVITIES:

House Manager of Art House
Green Street Arts Center
Ensemble based theater group (Cofounder)
Psi Upsilon fraternity
WesDEF (Diversity Education Facilitator)

WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:

Besides tours being my only consistent form of exercise, I love giving them because I get to show off Wesleyan.  Every tour is a little bit different because every Wesleyan student is different, but we all share a love for this school and I want to pass this love on to prospective students.

FAVORITE
MOVIE(s):

West Side Story
Wet Hot American Summer
School of Rock

FAVORITE SONG(s):

All These Things That I’ve Done by The Killers
