What’s your favorite spot on Newman’s campus?

The Performance Hall in the DeMattias Fine Arts Center

What would be your number-one tip for the admissions process?

Do as much research as you can before you start filling out applications, so you don’t overwhelm yourself by applying to too many schools…not to mention those app fees can add up! Think about what’s really important to you in choosing a college.

What is your most memorable undergraduate experience?

What I remember most are the little things! My most cherished memories are the times I spent hanging out with my friends Carmen, Nikita & Kara in Schwitzer Hall, the apartment village and later their shared place we called the Bailey house. Board games, movie nights, just being silly!

What is your ideal vacation destination?

I love to travel, can’t pick just one! Aruba, Prague, Rio, Barcelona, Hawai’i. Given time off and a plane ticket I’d go just about anywhere.


Watching football and college basketball, reading, travel, yoga, watching movies and trying new restaurants

What is your favorite song?

I love music, so I love lots of songs but my #1 all-time favorite is Freshmen by the Verve Pipe.

If you could have super powers what would they be and why?

Flight. Because…isn’t that the best one?

What are five things you cannot live without?

  • Family
  • Friends
  • My iphone
  • FroYo
  • The Skimm (a daily newsletter with international current event updates in brief)
