Looking back, what piece of advice would give to your freshman self on move in day?
The piece of advice that I would give to myself on move-in day would probably to just be yourself and enjoy every minute of freshman year because it flies by.
What do you feel has been your greatest accomplishment at Marist?
My greatest accomplishment at Marist has been getting through four years of Mathematics. While I love the subject, I have worked incredibly hard and have spent countless hours studying for exams to make sure my grades stayed high. Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of fun too, but I'm pretty proud of all of the work I've done because it definitely wasn't easy balancing it all!
What class do you think will stick with you the most after graduation and why?
The class that I think will stick the most with me after graduation is probably Psychology of the Adolescent. It took a lot of hard work to get through that class, but by the end, I learned so much about how adolescents think and act from a psychological standpoint.
