Major: Art History/ Double minor in Business and Italian.
What I want to do with my major: Oh the question of the year for all seniors! As of now, I want to pursue a master degree in either higher education or international studies, but who knows what next semester will bring. I love to travel, so anything involving lots of people and sights.
Campus involvement: Chi Omega Panhellenic Delegate, Frog Camp Director, Honors Cabinet.
Why I chose TCU: I originally came to TCU to play soccer, but had to stop after a major injury. I know right about now you are probably frowning and have a concerned look on your face, but no worries! Not playing soccer was actually a wonderful blessing in disguise, since it allowed me to get involved in other activities.
Why I’m glad I joined the JVR: One word: Ohana. For those of you who have not seen Lilo & Stitch (am I dating myself?), “ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind.” Like any older brother, JVR always has your back…no matter how many mid-college crises you decide to throw at it. It’ll just pat you on the back and present you with another life-changing opportunity.
Favorite Honors class: Dr. Bohn’s Caravaggio graduate class. We met every Tuesday at the Kimbell Art Museum and discussed the different works by Caravaggio and his followers. I really enjoyed discussing topics with graduate students and docents, plus it was incredible to see these famous works in person!
Favorite place on TCU’s Campus: The nook in Student Development Services. Perfect for working, playing magnetic darts, dancing to “Walking in Memphis” by Lonestar, and conversing with its friendly neighborhood ghost.
Favorite JVR memory: Oh man this is a difficult one, but I am going to have to go with the time two other students and I explored every Roman church on the map. Literally, the three of us took out a map, circled every church and landmark that we saw, and spent the whole day walking around Rome in search of these sights.
Coolest TCU or JVR experience: This past summer I facilitated Frog Camp Alpine in Taylor Park, Colorado. I was out in the relative wilderness (no bathrooms or showers) for ten days with other facilitators, faculty/staff, and an incredible group of incoming TCU students. The white water rafting, high and low element ropes course, rock climbing, and hiking provided a necessary change of scenery before I began my senior year. I came back refreshed and ready for this last year!
Favorite TV show and why: I am on a big How I Met Your Mother kick right now. I start giggling just thinking about it.
Three unusual things about myself:
1. I love to sing and will often break out in song during everyday activities.
2. I have travelled to four out of the seven continents, but plan on visiting the three others within the next ten years.
3. I get happy when it rains.
