What led you to Michigan State?

I never thought about going to Michigan State until I visited the campus my senior year. I was focused on another school at first, but when I got into Michigan State and toured it, I knew it was where I wanted to be. 

 

What’s your favorite spot on campus?

My favorite neighborhood is North neighborhood, I really like just walking around. My favorite building is the Biomedical Physical Sciences building —It’s a very beautiful building and I love the windows throughout, it’s always bright. 

 

In your opinion, which dining hall serves the best food?

The best dining hall is Landon because there’s a good variety of food each week, and the food tastes the most homemade. Plus the dining hall has good vibes. 

 

Which dining is the worst?

Honestly Brody Hall is the most overrated. The food never changes, so eating there every day got hard. 

 

What do you typically do on a weekday after classes?

I stress all day thinking about having to do my science homework — to a point where I basically cry every day. But the knowledge is worth the pain. 

 

What do you do when you’re not crying about bio?

I love devoting my time to having good vibes in my room. By that I mean decorating, cleaning, rearranging. I love doing luxurious things for myself and treating myself always. 

 

Do you have any tips about treating yourself on a college budget?

Find one thing that brings you joy, even if it’s as simple as making a cup of coffee. That way when you want to treat yourself, you have an easy go-to. Even lighting a candle and listening to music feels like treating myself, and I don’t even have to spend money. Cleaning is another way I like to treat myself, and it’s a great stress reliever. 

 

What’s the most valuable thing to you as a college student?

The most valuable thing to me is the satisfaction of being able to succeed in school while working hard at my job. It motivates me and makes me confident in my ability to accomplish things even in times of struggle.
