Why did you choose Middlebury?

When I visited, I immediately felt comfortable on campus and felt like I had a lot in common with the students. It was a strong positive gut feeling that I only had at one or two other schools. Besides that, it came down to financial aid and distance from home.

Why/How did you choose your major?

Kind of on a whim. But it’s worked out well.

What was your biggest challenge transitioning into the college atmosphere?

Choosing a major and believing in it.

What is your fondest memory of Middlebury thus far?

Orange Crush (80s cover band) every single year.

What is your favorite class/Who is your favorite professor?

Global Challenges of the 21st Century with Jon Isham

What do you do in your spare time?

Sailing, skiing, high fives, hip hop music, power naps, guitar, making waffles, self-pity related to being a Baltimore Orioles fan
