What does WAC mean to you? 

Washington College is a community. It is the place that I’ve called home for the last two years. Washington College is so much more to me than just a school with classrooms and sporting events. It is a place where I have been challenged to be my best in both academic and social settings.

 

Why did you choose your major? 

I always knew I wanted do something with science and being a doctor definitely topped the list. I decided to double major because the internship I have been working on this summer.

 

Favorite Chestertown Hangout: 

Evergrain is definitely one of my favorite places to grab lunch and study or work on a paper. 

 

Favorite thing to order at The Cove:

Grilled Cheese! 

 

Favorite way to procrastinate:

Definitely napping! I can’t study in my room or else I end up taking long naps. 

 

What are you doing this summer? / What are you looking forward to? 

I am doing pesticide research with Dr. Van Meter here on campus. I am also going horseback riding for fun this summer and helping out at the local rescue barn! I am so excited to meet the new incoming class and the newest addition to the Washington College community!
