Favorite question on a tour: “What has been the highlight of your time as a Clemson student?” – The absolute best part of my experience as a student at Clemson is definitely the people that I’ve met. I am a firm believer that the people make the place! My experience wouldn’t be nearly as special as it has been without the supportive and passionate people I’ve met throughout my time here!

Hobbies: I love to hang out with my friends, workout, listen to music, and go shopping!

Advice for jumping into college life: Be open to new people and new things! Try to get out of your comfort zone! It can be pretty scary at first, but you may find a new community, hobby, or interest by branching out!

Advice on how to choose a college: Find your home away from home! Go to a school where you can grow in a number of different ways – as a student, friend, and professional. Go to a school that will provide you with a family and support system that you’ll have for a lifetime!

Fun fact about yourself: I went to the same school for sixteen years before coming to Clemson! Clemson was the first time I’d gone to a new school my entire life and it’s been the best EVER!
