What do you do for a campus job or work study?
I am a Marketing intern at the Washington College Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Lab.

What are you up to this summer? And what are you most looking forward to?
This summer I will be interning in the Washington DC office of Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick.  He is a member of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Financial Services, so I am excited to have an experience that intertwines my interests in Economics, Politics, and Finance.  I am also very excited to be in such an amazing city for the summer.

What should every student do before they graduate?
Every college or university has its unique tradition, and WAC’s is obviously May Day.  Every student needs to experience this uniquely odd tradition at least one night before they leave WAC.

What is your favorite place on campus?
My favorite place on campus is the Johnson Fitness Center.  The newly renovated gym is now state-of-the-art and a great place to get a good workout in.
