Why did you join greek life?
I love the perfect balance of friendship, charisma and opportunity.
Why did you choose JCU?
As soon as I had set foot on campus, I fell in love with the homey feeling. The small class size is also a great way to truly feel like you are getting to make a true connection with your teacher. The Arrupe program was definitely a huge part to choosing JCU as well because I was also highly considering Miami University of Ohio.
Favorite thing about JCU?
I love the community feel, walking across campus and knowing almost everyone who passes. It definitely puts me in a better mood seeing the smiling faces of friends everywhere I go.
