Music Education, 2016

Activities on Campus: Chamber Choir, Choir, Four F's, Lycoming Buddies, United Campus Ministries, SPSEA, Tour Guide

Hometown: Milton, Del.

High School: Cape Henlopen High School

Most Influential Professor: Fred Thayer was my favorite professor because he never gave up on students and always pushed them to do their best. He treated every student as if they were his own child and tried to help and support someone anytime they needed it.

Favorite Part of Class: Learning something new or being challenged on an assignment or project

Favorite Campus Event: Relay for Life because of the great tables and activities that the organization and the school itself creates to help raise funds for cancer, but I also enjoy that it brings together almost everyone at the college together to help fight for a great cause.

Advice to students: I once was told "the key to happiness is serving others," so my advice to you is get involved in the Lycoming community because it will help you succeed and enjoy your time here at Lycoming. Also, don't be afraid to show up or join an activity, club, group or take a leadership role in an assignment because you will regret missing out on those opportunities and not taking that step.
