Class of 2012
Major/Minor: Sociology

Q & A

Hometown? Boston, Massachusetts (Moved to Baltimore, Maryland when I was seven)

High School? Seton Keough High School

Favorite Class at WC? Victimology because I learned so much about what it means to be a victim of a crime, how to overcome being a victim, how to help those who are victimized, and that anyone could be a victim no matter how small the crime is.

Recommended Professor? Professor Lange (professor of victimology). Her teaching methods are very relaxed and you feel like a student not just a number. Professor Lange teaches a discussion-based class, not in lecture form. Which gives everyone in her class a voice and helps one learn the material better. She also brings in several guest speakers who give in depth information about the material we are learning in her class. This gives each student the opportunity to grasp and understand better teaching material better, rather then relying solely on the textbook.

Most Memorable Experience as a First-Year Student? I think my most memorable experience as a freshmen was finishing the year in one piece and having good grades to show for all the hard work I put into the first year.

If I Could be Any Animal, I’d be? A dolphin because I am a swimmer plus I have a fun loving, friendly, and caring personality that dolphins have.

One Thing You Shouldn’t Forget to Pack Is? I would say family/friends pictures because one can tend to get home sick and transitioning from being home all the time to a few times during each semester can be tough. Pictures help comfort you and make you feel at home without having to leave campus.
