Favorite part about IC:My favorite part of IC is the ability to build a community. Everywhere I go, I feel very comfortable and welcomed. There’s always so much to do, and there is a strong support network that accompanies all of my involvement.”

Favorite Honors seminar (so far) and why:My favorite Honors seminar is Simple Machines because it was very hands-on and allowed me to experience a field that I would have never learned about. The projects were all very interesting and really pushed me out of my comfort zone.

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors Program:I got the opportunity to pitch a TV show to one of the founders of MTV, Andy Orgel at Park Tank.”

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