Where are your favorite places to study on campus?
My favorite place to study on campus is in the Mell study rooms. I love being able to rent a study room online and study in a quiet area with no distractions. 

What tips would you give a student about registration?
Make an appointment with your advisor no matter what year you are. It’s always a good idea to check in and ensure that you are taking the right classes and are on track to graduate!  

Why did you choose your specific major?
I chose Psychology because I not only found the material to be interesting, but I also loved that my degree allowed me to choose almost any career path after graduation. 

Which organizations do you participate in as a student?
As a student, the organizations that I participate in include my social sorority and it’s executive board, and the Undergraduate Research Ambassadors. I have also been very involved in undergraduate research in the psychology department throughout my time as a student. 

What are your career plans after college?
After graduation, I am attending law school in the fall. I’m not sure where yet, but I am excited to see where this next chapter of my life takes me.
