Why did you choose your major? I love solving the challenging puzzles that Math and Computer Science present.

Favorite spot on campus? Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium.  From the many hours practicing there to simply cheering on my friends at their games, the stadium has become one of my favorite spots on campus. 

Favorite thing to order at the Cove: The Flat Iron!

Favorite way to procrastinate: Binge watching T.V. shows on Netflix

What has been your favorite WC tradition? I love Relay for Life because it brings the entire campus together for one night and shows how much of a community we are.
