Favorite place for lunch on campus or in town: Loose Change! Nothing beats a Loose Change burger after the Tigers win a football game in Death Valley:)

Favorite question on a tour: “What made you choose Clemson?” This is a question I even get asked outside of tours, but I love answering it because there are so many reasons I chose Clemson! Coming out of state and being seven hours away from home, I was looking for a place that felt like a family and would welcome me with open arms. Ever since the first day I stepped foot on campus and walked around with my mom and just a map, I felt a genuine sense of community and one that would support me as I transitioned into college. The “Clemson Family” is truly a real thing! Whether this be through organizations, the friends you meet in your residence hall freshman year, or hugging strangers and friends alike as we sing our alma mater, I have been so lucky to find a second family away from home that pushes me to grow and learn more about myself everyday!
Clubs and Organizations you are involved in on campus: Alpha Delta Pi, Clemson Honors College, Clemson Canine Companions, Clemson Pre-Veterinary Society
Hobbies: I love going for walks on the Dikes, grabbing coffee with my friends, and anything that involves being around animals!
Advice for jumping into college life: Say yes to everything and get involved as early as you can! Opening yourself up to new opportunities, even those outside of your comfort zone, allows you to form new friendships and create communities that make a bigger school feel small. All freshmen are in the same boat as you and are looking to form these relationships too! Whether this be through Clemson University Tour Guides or another organization I am in, getting involved has allowed me to become part of something bigger than myself and make connections that go beyond just four years at Clemson.
Advice on how to choose a college: Choose a college that can provide you comfort, but also challenges you to new experiences outside of your comfort zone! Wherever you decide to go should feel like home, but one that will push you to be the best version of yourself in all aspects of your life. College is a time of growth and learning, and you want to choose somewhere that allows you to flourish!
Fun fact about yourself: I lived in Germany for three years, and traveled to 13 different countries while I was there!
