Why did you choose to attend Pitzer?
I came from a very different environment than Pitzer (the heart of Washington DC) and was totally fascinated by the unique experience I would have. I wanted to be challenged and grow and learn more about myself.
What is your favorite spot on campus?
I love spending time at the old study desks from my first-year residence hall. They have beautiful views of Mt. Baldy and remind me of all of the excitement of beginning my journey here at Pitzer.
What’s your favorite thing to do for fun on campus?
I love going to Art After Hours for live music, good food, and art!
What is your favorite Pitzer memory thus far?
I will never forget the first time I saw my friends feel emboldened enough to perform at Groove at the Grove for their first time.
What is one thing you would change about Pitzer?
Dining Hall hours! Our dining hall is too popular to cram so many people in for so short a time frame!
What’s something that all prospective students should know about Pitzer?
1 – It’s not that close to LA!
2 – There are a lot of awesome clubs to join, like Art Collective.
3 – Pitzer classes and professors are the best.
How can first-year students enjoy a smooth transition to Pitzer?
Be prepared and okay with challenging yourself and trying the so-called “unknown. Major parts of the Pitzer experience are playfulness, willingness to take risks, and trying things you never thought you would enjoy!
