Involvement at CLU: Cheer team Captain, Presidential Host Lead, Student Ambassador
Fond memories at CLU: My freshman year I became good friends with a girl that lived in my hall. Her name is Kate and she is also from Washington, just about 30 minutes away from me! It was really nice to connect with someone on campus that understood what I was going through.
Favorite spot on campus and why? My favorite spot is William Rolland Stadium, not just because I get to cheer on the field at every home football game, but because you can feel the support that the fans give the team while they are cheering from the stands. The Purple Pit student section always has friends of the players no matter the weather.

Fond memories at CLU: Events in Kingsmen park! Whether there's food trucks, games, inflatables, sweets, etc, there's always something on in Kingsmen park. I love Let It Snow, Bring It Back Bash, Buh Bye Bash, and all that goes on in Kingsmen park.
Favorite spot on campus and why? The desks by the window side of the library! It's my favorite place to do homework because of the direct sunlight. You don't need additional lights or lamps, the sun will do plenty! You get a great view of all the flowers and the sky, and on a nice clear day, it really relaxes you and gets you in the mood for homework.
