Describe your initial reaction upon seeing the campus and athletic facilities for the first time.

When I first arrived upon campus everything seemed to be under construction, and yet despite all of the work taking place the natural beauty of the surroundings were breathtaking. The combination of its beautiful scenery and outstanding facilities make Middlebury a wonderful place to live.

What is the one thing that makes Middlebury College a special place for you?

I love being surrounded by such an incredibly eclectic and intelligent student body. Everybody is constantly willing to share their own experience and knowledge to help peers, and I believe that it is through this attitude that we are able to create truly innovative ideas.

What is your best memory as a player at Middlebury College?

I remember playing in my first match as a freshman. My hands were trembling I was so nervous. In those seconds before that whistle blew I came to understand just how proud I was to be representing Middlebury College as a Student Athlete.

What have you learned from your sport that you will use in your everyday life?

Most evident to me is my sense of confidence. Not only am I able to feel comfortable in new situations, but I am able to set high goals knowing I have the drive to achieve them.
