What is your favorite Triton sport? I love watching and reading about all the Triton sports but my favorites are softball and women’s soccer.

Where would you go if you could study abroad? I’d give anything to go back in time and take the opportunity to study abroad.  My top choices would be Australia and England, but I’d be happy anywhere in Europe and would to travel to several countries on the weekends.

What advice do you have for entering freshmen? Whether you are shy or outgoing, get involved on campus right away. You’ll enjoy your collegiate experience even more when you join a club or organization, attend events on campus, and meet new people. Get out of your comfort zone; it’s your time to grow intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
