What do you do for a campus job or work study? 

I don’t have a campus job, except for being a peer mentor, which I LOVE! :)

Have you had any internship, research, or study abroad experiences?

I worked last summer and am currently working this summer on a research team for pediatric asthma at Johns Hopkins Hospital. It’s an absolutely incredible experience, and I love working in the medical field and exploring more about future medicine.

How has WC changed your life?         

WAC has grown to be one of my favorite places in the world.  It has completely changed my perspective on life and has opened so many doors for me through the liberal arts education. I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else!

What should every student do before they graduate?

Every student should explore Chestertown and get to know everything about it. It’s such an interesting and quirky place, and there are many shops and restaurants in town that are absolutely necessary to go to before you leave WAC. Also, every student must try an Alaskan from Sam’s, garlic knots from Proccolinos, and a nutella latte from Evergrain, because they are absolutely to die for.
