Favorite Spot on Campus

The dock is a really nice place to relax -- it's serene and somewhere you can go to get away from it all for a little.

My most memorable UMBC experience was...

The bonfire. It didn't seem like it was going to be much of anything, until it was -- it was a really pretty fire, and it was nice to be around everyone who was out for it.

Favorite Class or Professor and Why

Debating America with Professor Jeremy Spahr. It's a first-year seminar that was my first ever in-person class. I learned a lot about contemporary issues, and having discussions about them was really fun.
