What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: My peers, teachers, and people that support me at SAS. 

Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: My favorite place on campus is the South Pond Trail along the Noxontown Pond. It’s a narrow trail that follows the edge of the water, and when you go far enough south you can view Founders Hall and the T-Dock from a distance. I always loved that walking in the woods felt like entering a different world, a retreat from busy everyday SAS life. I love the way that the sound of the bells seems to reverberate among the trees. 

Powerful Experience: Hearing Jesmyn Ward as a guest speaker when she visited St. Andrew’s last year was an especially powerful experience. I had read two of Ward’s books, Salvage the Bones and Sing, Unburied, Sing, in my English classes before her visit. During the dinner with Jesmyn Ward, she described her personal story in relation to the stories that she put on the page. During her subsequent lecture, as Ward read passages from her book, I was struck by both the entrancing and illuminative qualities of this moment. 

Recall in a Decade: I think the experiences of friendship and community will always be a part of me, long after I leave SAS. My four years at St. Andrew’s has instilled in me the idea that friendship can be a powerful and affirming part of my life, and that there are very few things in the world more important than the people that I’m surrounded by.
