Besides being passionate about the STEM field, I like to dabble in my other hobbies. I’ve been a pianist for 13 years and a cellist for seven years. You can sometimes even spot me painting or sketching on campus!
My Freshman Year at SLU
SLU seemed to check off all my boxes when I was looking for my best-fit college. It had everything I was looking for academically and socially. A highlight of my SLU experience so far? The variety of classroom atmospheres, whether it be a large lecture hall or a discussion-based class with only 10 people!
What I Love Abut SLU's Campus
My favorite thing about SLU’s is the "West Pine Effect." Basically, you can’t go more than 20 feet on campus without running into someone you know, which I absolutely love! Whenever I have any free time, I’ll try and stay out in front of the Center For Global Citizenship so I can talk and see all of my friends.
How I Stay Connected to Other Billikens
Making the effort to reach out whenever! For me, it’s mainly through social media or simply asking people to grab lunch with me!
Favorite Things About St. Louis
St. Louis is a large city that can be explored if you choose to! But on campus, although it can seem big, it’s quite intimate. It’s a lovely contrast between a big city and a close community.
Saint Louis University Campus
The campus is physically really aesthetic to me. It’s a great atmosphere with some of the best people, which makes it all the more pretty.
