WHY I CHOSE WES: 

Wesleyan was my first choice – after my first visit, I couldn’t picture myself anywhere else. The thing that most attracted me was the amazing energy throughout the whole student body, along with the creative spirit that dominates campus. I really wanted a college where passion is the norm and not the exception, and Wesleyan is definitely the perfect place for that.

ACADEMIC
INTERESTS:

I originally had no idea what I wanted to major in, because I have a wide variety of interests in the arts and humanities. Film drew me in because it combines several of those interests. I love the liberal arts approach Wesleyan takes to film – it combines technical practice with history and theory, which I really appreciate.

FAVORITE CLASS:

I took Sex and Text in Freud’s Vienna (German Studies) my freshman fall, mostly on a whim, and ended up loving it. Along with being fascinated by the content of the class, taking it inspired me to be adventurous in my course selection, which has led me to some really fascinating classes that I might have not been open to otherwise.

CAMPUS
ACTIVITIES:

Second State productions
Wesflix (sophomore film coalition)
Punchline (stand-up comedy)

WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:

I want to be a tour guide because it combines two things I love: talking a lot, and talking about Wesleyan. Applying to college is a rough time for everyone, and I want to help prospective students learn as much as they can about Wes so that their process is just a little easier.

FAVORITE MOVIE:

Young Frankenstein
Waiting for Guffman
Back to the Future

FAVORITE SONG:

This Must Be The Place by The Talking Heads

FUN FACT:

I have a blue birthmark on my lower back.
