Why CU?  For me, College Union is a great way to bring out my creative side while working with some of the most exciting and amazing people on campus. If there’s a party, I come running. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to step back for a change and plan memorable events for the student body.

What’s your favorite place on campus to connect with friends? Sam’s. It’s the best place to sit, have a drink, and do homework if you’re hoping to never get anything done- inevitably, your friends are going to pass by and strike up a conversation with you.

How would you describe the dinner hour in Anderson Commons to someone outside of the Wheaton Community?  It’s hectic, but in an oddly organized way. There’s lots of screaming, smiling, great smells, and an amazing community of workers that are always eager to form relationships with you.

If you had to perform in the Talent Show what would your act be and who would be in it?  I would probably do a medley of my favorite Disney songs, but force all of my friends to dress up as characters from the movies. I consider auditioning this act at every Talent Show I come across, but I don’t think that America is ready for me just yet. In time, in time...

Favorite CU event and why?  I love Class Films, which I have the pleasure of coordinating this year. I always respect the blood, sweat, and tears that each director puts into making his or her film, and it’s amazing to see everyone’s final product. Bring on your best scripts, Wheaton!

How has the community at Wheaton impacted you? Wheaton has shown me that you can find love wherever you are, as long as you’re willing to search for it. God’s grace is so evident on our campus and has blessed me with unique opportunities and wonderful memories in the short time that I’ve been here. Getting to serve others—no matter the scale—has given me a much deeper understanding of what it means to follow Christ and to live for Him.
