Why did you choose your major?

Psychology has always been something I’m really interested in and have intended to study, although I’m not sure what I want to do with it yet. 

 What’s it like living in Chestertown?

A lot of students don’t realize how nice Chestertown can be because they never go out and explore the area. Downtown can be really fun on a Saturday morning during the farmers’ market or on a First Friday, or during holidays and festivals over the summer. We’re also at a great central location to visit Philly, Baltimore, D.C., and other surrounding areas. I’ve really enjoyed living here.

What is your favorite Ctown hangout?

I really love going to Play It Again Sam’s, a little coffee house downtown on Cross Street. The Prince Theatre at the Garfield Centre for the Arts is also a favorite place; I’ve met a lot of amazing people by participating in the Short Attention Span Theatre one summer.
