Favorite part about IC: “I love the incredible alumni base IC has built up over the years. Alumni are always willing to talk to you about your plans and goals and give advice.”

Favorite seminar (so far) and why: “I loved taking Bruce Henderson’s Teenage Wasteland class. Not only were the books we read very interesting, but the class really bonded and got to know each other. It was a great way to become more well-read and to meet new people in my freshman year.”

Coolest opportunity from IC and/or the Honors Program: “Through the Park School Internship Database, I learned about a syndication and post-production company in my hometown. I applied to be an intern and was able to learn a lot about the industry the summer after my freshman year. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to see what else IC has in store for me.”

We’re always looking for interesting students to highlight in our Student Spotlight series.

One piece of advice you wish you had been given during your time at IC:It’s okay to change your mind.”
Favorite Honors seminar and why:Staging History with Claire Gleitman. Claire is such an incredible human being and her class was the one honors seminar I took that allowed me to delve deeper into texts and subjects surround my major. So that was awesome.”
One word that sums up your university experience:Frigid (Ithaca is COLD). No but actually, the word I choose is, rewarding.”
