Why did you choose Albion?
I came to Albion because I felt I could do things at Albion that I could not do anywhere else (and I have). Albion felt like home from the first moment I came to campus as a high school student. Albion has the small classes that allow for more in-depth work associated with the liberal arts, but also has the opportunities you think you could only get at a big school.
What is your best Albion memory or experience?
During finals my sophomore year, a group of friends and I were in the Science Center studying. It was getting late, and the many hours of studying we're getting to us. At some point around midnight, we all lost it and broke out in laughter at some thing none of us can remember. For some time, we were all just laughing and joking with each other and forgetting about the massive amount of work we had.
What are your future plans?
I am looking into becoming an outdoor mountaineering guide, and combining that with my study of geology in a way to help expand the science in some of the most extreme environments on Earth.
How have financial aid and scholarships helped you?
The scholarship I got from Albion was amazing, and to have received it for my academics was a big honor -- and a big part of helping me come to Albion. For many of my friends, scholarships and financial aid have been the reason they are able to come to Albion, and most of those people have become my best friends.

...explore ideas and topics that I never thought I would experience, and that now have become a big part of my life.
