Why SG? Student Government is a really unique opportunity to serve the student body. Wheaton has poured so much into me and has influenced me tremendously and I am eager to share that experience with other students and give back. I also thought it would be a fun way to get to know other students better and get involved in something I have never done before.

Why Wheaton? I transferred to Wheaton as a sophomore and have loved this school from the very beginning. From the time I had my phone interview, the Lord overwhelmed me with peace that Wheaton was the place for me, and it soon became home. Since before entering college, I was unsure of the exact medical field I wanted to study. I initially looked into Wheaton because of its AHS department. I love that Wheaton is a place of academic rigor but it is more importantly a place where I am challenged to love God more each day.

When you’re not studying or working on projects, where can we find you on campus? Somewhere in Lower Beamer.  

Describe Wheaton in three words: A loving community

Favorite Wheatonism: Saga date!

Most memorable experience at Wheaton so far: My most memorable experience so far at Wheaton was travelling to Bolivia this past summer for SMP with three other wonderful students. Bolivia will always hold a special place in my heart because it is where I really became passionate about helping and serving others through medicine.

What makes Wheaton unique? The fact that we gather as a student body three times a week to meditate and worship together as a community is so special. Wheaton is a place to be challenged academically, emotionally, and spiritually, but to know that there is an incredible community when we fail is so encouraging.
