Why did you choose Albion?
I chose Albion because of the opportunities it provided both academically and athletically.
What is your best Albion memory or experience?
My best Albion experience has been my involvement with the First Year Underrepresented Student Mentoring Program. This opportunity has provided me the privilege of helping and teaching others, while also providing me an opportunity to learn from others' experiences.
What are your future plans?
My future plans include heading to graduate school, finding a career in marketing or management, and to travel the world to broaden my perspective.
How have financial aid and scholarships helped you?
My family ran into some serious financial issues and I almost was unable to come back to school my junior year. I would not be at Albion if it weren't for the college's scholarships and financial aid services.
How would you finish this sentence: "Because you give to Albion, I'm able to ...
...have opportunities that many of my peers from home do not have. Because of you I have been able to be a leader within a variety of organizations, both on and off campus. My time at Albion has helped me grow as a person, and your contributions have directly contributed to my success and access to opportunities. I am forever grateful for that!
