Favorite place for lunch on campus or in town: Does ice cream count as lunch?? 😉 I love stopping by the ’55 Exchange on campus after a lab as a mid-day pickup, or just for a sweet treat!

Favorite spot on campus: Cooper Library! Besides the fact that the 3rd floor is the best study spot on campus, I love that you’re always running into a friend in the library, and the view of North Green and the reflection pond is one of my favorites in Clemson!

Favorite question on a tour: “What do we need to see or do while in Clemson?” I love getting to talk about all the best parts of Clemson- it may be a small town, but there is SO much to do! Here’s my go-to’s: stop by for ice cream at ’55 Exchange, get some Clemson merch at Tigertown Graphics, walk the dikes at sunset, and Smokin’ Pig for dinner!

Clubs and Organizations you are involved in on campus: Clemson FCA, CUGA, Sigma Alpha Omega, Clemson Honors College

Hobbies: I love to read, watch movies, and spend time with family!

Advice for jumping into college life: Be prepared to struggle as you adjust to life in college, but remember that it’s normal, and it’s not permanent!! You’re experiencing a lot of change all at once, and that takes time to adjust to. You’ll find your rhythm and make the most of your college experience!

Advice on how to choose a college: When it comes to picking a college, academic statistics, scholarships, programs, and more are important things to consider, but make sure to think about what you want your overall college experience to be! These next 4 years of your life are more than just being in the classroom 24/7, so choose a college that feels like home to you.

Fun fact about yourself: I’m originally from Florida, and lived there for 10 years!
