HIGH SCHOOL:
East Greenwich High School
MAJOR:
Economics
WHY I CHOSE WES: 

Wesleyan initially was not my first choice, and it scared me a little that people at Wesleyan had such diverse interests. But it is exactly that students at Wesleyan are enthusiastic about so many different things that made me fall in love with it. During my prefrosh visit, it was so interesting to see that students are not scared to learn about the things they enjoy rather than choosing some path to a career. My host also went out of her way to make sure I knew I could use her as a resource, and she continued answering any questions I had weeks after my visit. The students at Wesleyan are beyond inviting. Everyone is so animated when talking about Wesleyan, it was impossible to choose any other school.


ACADEMIC INTERESTS:

While I have been on an Economics course track, I have tried to take a variety of classes to complement the major and to broaden my interests. I am really interested in Psychology and have taken nearly enough courses to become a major. More recently, I have enrolled in the Humanities courses I missed out on freshmen year. Classes like Buddhist Art and Drawing are so dissimilar from Economics and challenge me in a different way.

FAVORITE CLASS:

My favorite class at Wes has been “Myth, Magic, and Movies” with Bob Steele. It is one of the toughest classes to get in to, because it is a class on Harry Potter. It was so much fun to reread the books and watch the movies, but we also explored themes of sexuality and morality that I had never previously associated with Harry Potter. Also, Bob is one of the most engaging and approachable professors I have ever had. I thoroughly encourage begging your way into that class!

ACTIVITIES:

Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO)
Rho Epsilon Pi Sorority (Rho Ep)

WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:

My host was a main reason that I chose Wes, and I would just love to pass my enthusiasm for the school on to another incoming class of students.

FAVORITE MOVIE:

Love Actually


FAVORITE SONG:
"A Thousand Years" by Christine Perri
FUN FACT:

My dream is to open a bakery, and I love baking when I am stressed out and trying to procrastinate. I make a mean banana bread.
