Hometown: Dearborn Heights, Michigan
Alma Mater: University of Dallas, 2015
Degree: B.A. Psychology
Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: I support UD's overall mission. I especially appreciate how UD's Core Curriculum
sets it apart from other liberal arts universities. UD students learn how to think
independently, critically and creatively while studying primary texts from some of
the greatest authors in the history of Western Civilization. It is a unique way of
learning and relating to the texts that is both liberating and enjoyable. The students
and professors here support each other in the pursuit of wisdom and virtue, and I
believe that is how a liberal arts education should be.
Favorite Spot on Campus: The Cap Bar
Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? Katy Trail, Klyde Warren Park, DMA, Uptown, Deep Ellum -- I can't pick just one! There
are plenty of cool places to hang out in Dallas.
Favorite Book: Crime and Punishment
Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: Terra Mediterranean Grill
Favorite UD Event: Mallapalooza
Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: Berchtesgaden, Germany -- it's a small town near Salzburg. I got lost with my friend
on the way to find it, but it was a beautiful sight once we got there. Most of the
shops were closed because we arrived at night, but I had some of the best hot chocolate
I've ever tasted, and the memories that I made that day will stay with me the rest
of my life.
Advice to Prospective Students: There are so many ways to be involved on UD's campus. Take advantage of the opportunities
that surround you. Challenge yourself in areas where you think you might need more
prompting, and watch yourself grow into a stronger and more mature person as a result.
