Reading, gardening, writing, kayaking, exploring!

Most exciting UD memory:

I have participated in two alternative spring breaks and loved them both! It was great to spend a week meeting new people from UD and doing environmental service together.

Advice for a new student:

Get involved! There are so many opportunities at UD, and the only way to find your hidden talents and interests is to push yourself out of your comfort zone and try new things! College is fun because you get to do what you love!

Advice for their parents:

Smile! Your son or daughter is about to enter an exciting time in their life. The best thing you can do is love, trust, and support them!

Why I chose Delaware:

I originally came to UD to play volleyball here. Although I no longer play, I continue to love the school for its gorgeous campus, countless opportunities, and location!

How I decided on my major:

I like learning about people, society, and science so psychology is a great combination of those things. In my classes, I get to learn about everything from the brain to culture to research methods. The blend is interesting and fun for me.

Favorite outdoor adventure:

This winter, I went on a NOLS course in the southwest, where I backpacked and rock climbed for a month while learning about outdoor travel, leadership, and teamwork. It was an incredible experience!

Favorite memory of my Summit experience:

While I didn’t participate as a freshman on Summit, one of my favorite memories as a leader last year was cooking breakfast at Washington’s Monument after the sunrise hike. I remember feeling so energized and excited about the successful hike, the sunrise, and the day ahead!

Favorite spot on Main Street:

Del Pez has a great brunch! But I also love Homegrown and Brew Ha Ha.

Plans after college:

Thinking about AmeriCorps or doing some kind of farming internships.

Interesting Facts:

Polar bears have black skin! And Honeybees can flap their wings 200x every second!
