Activities on Campus

President of the Wooster Volunteer Network, Great Decisions of Wayne County Program Committee Member, Executive member (Secretary) and Diversity Chair of Pi Kappa, Allen Scholars Leadership Board.

Favorite Wooster Tradition

The signing of the Wooster Ethic at the beginning of each school year, this reminds me of how important community, respect, and ethics as a student at the college continues throughout all four years. 

Favorite Spot on Campus

On campus it's the Pit- I can study, hang out, and sleep in the pit without feeling uncomfortable. 

When I need a break from campus, I love going to Broken Rocks for a meal, or even just dessert with some friends! They have the BEST fresh bread and local foods.
