Why did you choose Albion?
I've been visiting Albion College since my sophomore year of high school, and I have truly fallen in love with campus. It reminds me of the time period I wanted to grow up in. The opportunities to get involved, both educationally and socially, are endless, which is something that is important for me.
What is your best Albion memory or experience?
I've been here a short period of time, but I've already made so many memories. I'm going to have to say that my best memory of Albion thus far is this: The morning a paper was due, Chris Brown ('15) and I met in the Honors Observatory with a box of Reese's Puffs and a huge jug of water and just sat there for three or four hours writing our papers together, bouncing ideas off one another and listening to the widest array of music I have ever heard.
What are your future plans?
I am hoping to go into corporate law for an aviation-related firm and eventually enter public service.
How have financial aid and scholarships helped you?
I am an independent student, and affording college on my own would have been truly impossible. Financial aid and scholarships are truly the reason I'm able to be on this campus every day.
How would you finish this sentence? "Because you give to Albion, I'm able to ...
... walk through campus every day, looking up at a clear blue sky, and think to myself, 'I'm living the American Dream.'"
