Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: I feel lucky to have spent three years on the girl’s lacrosse team. All of my coaches have taught me how to be confident in myself on the field and as a person. My teammates every year challenged me to be a better player but also grew to be like family to me. Many of my favorite memories from SAS belong to that team.
Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: M dorm junior year compares to no other dorm I have lived on. From dance parties during brush-and-wash to highly entertaining conversations in the common room, there was always something crazy and fun going on. Although we had a slow start in coming together, that big yellow building worked its magic by the time spring had come. MDBD and MDVD forever.
Advice to Underclassmen & Future Students: I would tell underclassmen to take every opportunity to get to know everyone in your class. You may have dismissed someone after your first impression freshman year, but as I’ve continued through SAS I have found that some of my greatest friendships have been the unexpected ones.
