What does WAC mean to you?: It means finding a new, close-knit family away from the one I left at home.

Why I chose my major: I spent my entire childhood outside and surrounded by nature, and wanted to be able to use my education to further understand something that I loved.

Favorite thing to order at the Cove: Chicken Nuggets, with honey mustard and Old Bay.

Favorite Hangout: I once spent three hours in the Bookstore reading cards and buying Combos.

Favorite Quote: “Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.”
