Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I chose Middlebury College because of the rigorous academics and rural learning environment. I knew I wanted to attend a small liberal arts college and thought that Middlebury’s academic, social, and athletic offerings best fit my specific interests. I chose Middlebury because I wanted to be pushed outside of my comfort zone, be forced to have new learning experiences, and grow into a more well-rounded young adult. I am so excited to be entering my senior year at the college and look forward to making the most of my remaining time here on campus. 

Favorite study spot? Axinn Center at Starr Library (especially the comfy chairs by big windows)

Favorite food in the dining hall? Chicken Parmesan 

Where did you study abroad, or where would you study abroad if you could? I did not study abroad because of COVID-19 (and rowing), but was looking to attend a major University in Dublin, Ireland. 

Favorite Vermont spot? Impossible to choose just one - I am a really big fan of Snake Mountain, Lake Dunmore, and the Middlebury College Snowbowl to name a few!

One fun fact about you or unknown talent you have: I can drive a stick shift (I’ve learned that lots of college aged people can only drive automatic)!
