Favorite Honors Course: One of my favorite Honors courses was Rhetoric. It was honestly the most time intensive class I’ve ever taken, but being able to succeed gave me the confidence to take more challenging classes. I have also been able to present my research on multiple occasions, which has been a great networking and learning opportunity.

Favorite Honors Memory: Hanging out and watching vine compilations in the common area as a freshman. I met amazing people who are now my best friends and even my roommates!

Student Organizations: President of Honors Student Executive Board, Research approved for Auctus
