What are you looking forward to most about Bearstock? I am looking forward to the performances of Krewella and Logic. I feel that the headlining artists are very interesting this year. Both musicians bring a nice contrast – electronic/dubstep and lyrical rap. These musicians will appeal to a wide spectrum of preferences and that is why I can not wait for April 12!
What is one piece of advice you have for incoming freshmen? I can say from experience, do not slack off. Go to class everyday and hit those books but, remember to breathe and enjoy the college life that the social media has promised. Make sure to be at every sports event and bleed orange and black. Do not be afraid to venture out of your comfort zones. There is always that possibility that you will find lifelong passion in the one random class you registered for just as a filler. Do what you love, and love what you do.
Future Plans: I plan to take the MCAT in the summer of 2015, ride along the pre-med track, and strive to land myself a job in the medical field. Even though I have already declared my major, I will always keep my options open. I do not know what the future has in store for me, but I pray that wherever I go, I hope I can provide medical services to those in need.
