My Favorite Thing About UD

My favorite thing about UD is walking around campus in the spring when the grass is green, flowers are blooming, and students are outside having fun! It makes UD such a beautiful place to be.

Life Outside UD

In my free time I enjoy reading, playing piano, singing a cappella, crocheting, watching movies, yoga, swimming, cooking, and making homemade ice cream!
