2. Which person or what event has had the greatest impact on your Bucknell career so far?

My mentors, advisors, and friends, the people who supported me during my ups and downs at Bucknell, encouraged me to stay, gave me a voice and provided me the opportunity to develop my leadership skills and channel my loudness/energy: Professor Massaro (Geography Department), Josh Hartman (previous Director of Residential Education), Rebecca Haupt (Community Director), Dean Pantano (Dean of Students Office), Emily Dietrich and the entire Career Development Center Staff, Mike Duignan and Kari Conrad (Dean of Students Office/ CAP Center), Dean Remley (Housing Services), Jason Cicoria (Bison Rec) and McDonnell RA Staff 2016-2017.


3. What has been the greatest surprise of your Bucknell experience?

My greatest surprise has been how people define the space of our campus (Geography major, sorry!). I liked Bucknell my first year, hated it my sophomore year and have loved it these past two years. Four years goes by so quickly and although a lot changes, so much stays the same, two steps forward, three steps back.


4. As a graduating senior, what will you miss most about Bucknell?

My friends and the people at Bucknell!


5. If you could give one piece of advice to a first-year student, what would it be?

This isn’t one thing but these are some things I try to remind myself to do every day: meet as many people as you can, try something new, fail, and make yourself uncomfortable as often as possible.
