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.”

Favorite part about IC: “The people. Throughout my time at IC, I have been able to collaborate with my peers and meet people from all walks of life. Additionally, the faculty have been such pillars of support and inspiration.”

Favorite Honors seminar you’ve taken and why: “It’s definitely a tie. First, I would have to say Staging History with Claire Gleitman. It was the first honors seminar that I have been able to combine my honors minor with my Theatre Studies major. It provided me to look at plays through a different lens than my major classes. However, I am also so in love with the honors seminar I took in London with Bill Sheasgreen, the director of the ICLC called City as Text. We spent every Monday going on walks throughout the city, using the city of London as out textbook.”

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors program: “LONDON. I had the opportunity to study abroad in London for the Fall of 2013. It was by far the greatest experience of my entire life. I learned so much about myself and made memories that I truly will never forget. My gosh that is so cheesy, but so true.”
