Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I am incredibly dedicated to Vermont in general, and I knew that once I was accepted to Middlebury, there was nowhere else I wanted to spend the next four years of my life. Vermont has always been my home, and I love to share this state with everyone else at Middlebury. It feels like one big community, and there is so much nature and beauty to enjoy here. I also chose Middlebury because of the broad range of perspectives among the student body and faculty. Having attended a small rural high school, I was excited to meet people from all over the world and get to learn what they are passionate about.

Favorite study spot? The back room of Crossroads Cafe on a quiet afternoon.

Favorite food in the dining hall? Veggie buffalo chicken nuggets, pierogies, and Oreo Nutella cheesecake.

Where did you study abroad, or where would you study abroad if you could? I would study abroad in Italy or New Zealand.

Favorite Vermont spot? The top of Camel’s Hump. I love hiking, and it has the best views of the Green Mountains. 

One fun fact about you or unknown talent you have: I have an extensive mug collection that I love to drink Earl Grey tea in.
