What do you hope to study at Pitzer?
Philosophy, Music, Literature, and Anthropology. To begin with.
What are some of your favorite extracurricular activities?
Boxing and bass-ing. I play in a lot of bands.
What are you most looking forward to at Pitzer?
Having my ideas challenged. People in the midwest are too nice to tell you you’re wrong.
When did you know Pitzer was at the top of your college list?
Pitzer was the first of about a dozen schools I visited in my Junior year. There was never a point at which I doubted it was #1.
Which core value is the most meaningful to you and why?
In a learning environment, student engagement. I have personally found that to truly engage with the subject matter, whatever it may be, is the only way I can retain and internalize it. On a larger scale, I think that students, making up the majority of any school body, should be willing, excited, even expected, to be involved in governance and shaping their school’s culture.
What is a fun fact about you?
I couldn’t jump rope up until last year. It was honestly very embarrassing.
