Why Willamette?

We are a place where students can authentically be themselves and feel welcomed and cared for on an individual basis. Whether it’s in the classroom, in their residence hall or on an athletic field, Willamette is a place of comfort and exploration for all.

Favorite High School or College Class or Subject?

I loved all of the Women Studies courses that I have the opportunity to take in college.

Something You Learned in College You Still Use?

I learned the importance of looking at perspectives and situations from multiple angles. Reflecting on how others may perceive something differently than myself broadens my ability to consider others viewpoints.

Memorable/Favorite High School or College Co-Curricular Activity

In college I loved being active within Fraternity and Sorority Life and gained opportunities for mentorship, leadership and service through being a member of a sorority.

Proudest Accomplishment to Date

Being awarded the Juel Lee Mentorship awarded from the Western Association for College Admission Counseling.

Favorite Book

I love a good children's book. Specifically anything by Eric Carle.
