Why CU? I love the opportunity that CU has to, through fun events, bring a campus community together to enjoy each other, take a break from the day-to-day stressors/routine, and make lasting memories.
About me: I was born in New Jersey, but have lived in the Wheaton area the majority of my life with my wonderful parents and younger brother. I am a first generation Wheatie and love it! I’m not sure what the future holds, but I would love to teach high school English after graduation and live in Chicago.
What’s your favorite place on campus to connect with friends? The Stupe: friends, food, fellowship, a fireplace and FANTASTIC TUNES (on Thursday’s!).
How would you describe the dinner hour in Anderson Commons to someone outside of the Wheaton Community? It’s where great conversation happens. You really know you’ve had a good meal with friends when you’re the only people left in Anderson Commons at 8:00 pm. Grab a friend, some tea, and a seat by the fireplace!
If you had to perform in the Talent Show what would your act be and who would be in it? I would get a bunch of friends together and DANCE – undoubtedly to a Beyonce track.
Favorite CU event and why? The President’s Ball because it’s new, classy and a bunch of fun! Also, Thursday night coffee houses at the Stupe!
How has the community at Wheaton impacted you? Wheaton’s community has redefined what the word “community” means to me. It’s changed the way I look at failure, growth, relationships, and countless other things. The Wheaton community is full of amazing and inspiring fellow believers that help challenge and support me everyday. It’s awesome.
