What are you involved in at CA?

I run cross-country and play varsity basketball and varsity softball. I am a head orientation leader for incoming students, and I am a co-head of DEMONs (Dreamers, Engineers, Mechanics, and Overt Nerds), which is an engineering club that builds things around and for campus!

What is the best class you’ve taken at CA?

The best class I’ve taken is Chemistry of Cooking with Susan Flink! In the class, we learned different cooking techniques while applying chemistry concepts to the food we made. We had multiple labs per week and I learned skills inside and outside of the classroom. 

How would you describe common trust?

Common trust allows students to be independent while fostering a mature community that gives students more freedom but also responsibility.

What is on your CA bucket list? 

I’m super excited to give my chapel in October and watch all my friends give theirs! It’s something I’ve been looking forward to for a while now!
