UD involvement:

Most exciting UD memory:

Being featured in the new admissions video and having people all over campus stop me to tell me they saw me laughing in the new video.

Why I chose Delaware:

The second time I came to campus I totally fell in love with it. All the people I saw looked genuinely happy to be here and there was a lot of school spirit. Also, UD is the perfect size for me. All of the students I met and interacted with were really nice and all of the professors I met seemed devoted to helping students succeed. I really saw myself fitting in here and belonging here and looking back I was 100% right!

How I decided on my major:

I was originally going to be a bio major but I wanted to study human anatomy and how the body works, not plants and ecology. Also, I have always been interested in going into the health care field, and I want a career involving sports as I have loved and played sports my entire life. Exercise science encompasses all of this.

Favorite TV show:

Say Yes to the Dress.

Plans after college:

Either attending medical school or physical therapy school or PA school, I am still trying to decide!

Interesting fact:

I am 6’2” and never played basketball. In fact, I did gymnastics for 14 years.
