Business (pre-law); Sophomore

Tell us a little about yourself!

 I am currently in my second year of college and I am interested in studying business, but am considering law. I am taking a legal studies class with a focus on criminal justice this semester in order to explore my interest in law and so far, I really enjoy the content taught. I like to read and coffee shops are my safe haven! I also run in my free time and try to make time to do so in my schedule since it is a huge stress relief in my life.

What is your favorite thing about JLC?

 My favorite thing about the JLC is how it offers vast opportunities to students on campus. The workshops, speaker events, and retreats, allow the participants and myself to develop leadership skills that are essential in one's personal and professional life. As a JLC intern, I also like how the Center allows me to be creative. I can be as creative as possible in working with my peers on workshops and deciding on what topic to focus on for speaker series.

What is your favorite feature of the Union?

My favorite thing about the Union is the study spots, such as the library and the piano room on the second floor of Memorial Union. I discovered these spots last year and have been going there to study ever since. Both spots are quiet and I am able to be very productive while there. It is a change of scenery from studying at college library because of the scenic view from the terrace. Every once in a while, someone would play the piano which makes studying that much better.

What is your favorite thing about campus? 

The ability to find something that interests you. With so many organizations and events , one is bound to find something that interests them. During my freshman year, I was in search of finding student organizations that I really enjoyed which I eventually found due to my active search. It is easy to become involved on campus and I urge everyone to find something that interests them because it makes life as a college student better when you meet people and make new friends.
