On campus, I’m on the women’s golf team, I am an athletics department photographer, national anthem singer, and the Pre-Law Society graphic designer. In my free time I love to paint, crochet, play piano, and play with my dog, Duncan!

What do you love most about Ursinus?

I love that you can stand out! With a smaller school like Ursinus, you can try new things and get new experiences that you wouldn’t be able to at bigger schools.

What opportunities have you had to explore and grow your passions at Ursinus?

I am currently a photographer for the athletics department and I sing the national anthem for some games! I love that this gives me a way to explore my artistic passions, and I have met so many people who have helped me grow as a photographer.

When did you first discover Ursinus was the right fit for you?

I originally committed to a different school and put my deposit down, but Ursinus sent me an email and I figured hey I’ll give it a shot since my uncle and cousin went here. I stepped foot on campus and fell in love with the look and feel.

What has been your favorite experience at Ursinus so far?

Going to pinehurst North Carolina for spring break with the golf team was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me! I played some beautiful courses and got to get closer to my teammates during the trip.
