Class of 2023

Hometown: Elkridge, MD

Major: History

Secondary Major: Print Media

Minor: Ancient Studies

Favorite Spot on Campus

Starbucks on Academic Row. It's a central spot where I can recharge with coffee and meet up with my friends.

Favorite Class or Professor and Why

The History of Medicine with Dr. Chapin. I enjoyed how even though it was a History course, the class was filled with people from majors such as Biology and Computer Science. Sharing a class with students of other majors helped to see other perspectives about History.

Favorite Local Shop or Restaurant

Plaza Artist Materials and Picture Framing in downtown Baltimore City. If you take any visual arts courses, Plaza Artist Materials is the place to go to get well- priced art supplies and they have a wide variety of materials.
