Hometown Las Vegas, NV
Major English (Secondary Education Minor)
Study Abroad-Away Experience: Just spent a semester at UCL in London, went to Argentina to learn more about the tango with a course at AU, did Preview in Barcelona, and grew up in the Air Force so I've lived in every time zone in the US and twice abroad before Arcadia. ;)
Clubs-and-Activities Arcadia University Choir, Sigma Tau Delta--English Honors Society, Hillel, For the Women, Education Club
Favorite Class If it isn't all of the First Year Seminars, it's a tie between The Argentine Tango and Writing Fiction and Poetry with Quincy Jones :)
Favorite Spot on Campus I have a few: the tables in front of the Commons, the wall in front of the library, or the hill by the Castle RIGHT above the AU hedges.
Advice to New Students Look at coming to Arcadia as a new adventure. If you come in here ready for anything and everything, you'll never be surprised and you'll always find something positive. Stay positive and remember that you're not alone in anything you might face here at Arcadia because we're a campus-wide family that is there for each other no matter who you are or the rough times faced.
What I love about being an Arcadia student I love that the professors, faculty, and staff know the students personally and quickly. They will go out of their way to help a student through whatever it is they need whether its working against a deadline for an application to go abroad or helping us find jobs during school and after we graduate. Arcadia is an amazing and supportive campus, both staff/faculty and students alike.
The best part of New Student Orientation The best part is that you get the campus to yourself and really get to make friends and bond with your peers before the start of term brings all of the stressers of homework and essays.
