Why did you choose Washington College?

I chose WAC because as soon as I stepped on campus, I felt at home. There’s something about the close-knit community that comes with a small school that made me feel immediately comfortable, and I knew I wanted to spend my next four years here.

What is your favorite thing about Chestertown?

It’s hard to choose, because Chestertown truly offers so much. There is so much charisma to this little town on the Eastern Shore. Whether it be the townspeople walking their dogs before it gets too late, the vendors at the farmers market early every Saturday morning, or simply how much history Chestertown has as you walk down High Street towards the water, I feel so lucky to be able to be apart of this diverse little town. 

Who is your favorite professor?

My favorite professor by far is Dr. Miller, a history professor who teaches a variety of history courses each semester. I love his lecture style and his sense of humor; he makes each class fun and exciting and he makes an hour and fifteen minute lecture period fly by.
