Favorite question on a tour: What makes Clemson so special? A: Too many to list, but in short: the people.
Clubs and Organizations you are involved in on campus: Central Spirit, Clemson LIFE,
Hobbies: I love all things sports but in the Clemson area I love hanging with friends on Bowman or going out on Lake Hartwell.
Advice for jumping into college life: Just be yourself. Everyone was once in your shoes (or is in your shoes) trying to make friends so just take that first step and know that everyone could always use a friend.
Advice on how to choose a college: Find a home! Quite simply you have to find the place where you want to get in front of a group of strangers and brag about it. Clemson does that to so many people.
Fun fact about yourself: I have broken my left arm four times (climbed out of my crib, fell off the monkey bars, fell down the stairs, lacrosse practice)
