What is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite part of campus is the view overlooking Lake Arthur from [the] Jepson [Business Center]. You can grab a cup of coffee at Thomas Hammer and take in the beautiful view from indoor or outdoor seating.

What about your favorite place in Spokane?

My favorite place in Spokane is the walk along the Centennial Trail from campus to downtown. There are two different routes to get there and both are absolutely beautiful when you get to cross over the river and see the waterfalls.

Which class and/or professor have you enjoyed the most so far?

I really enjoyed Ordinary Differential Equations because of my math professor. Dr. Dichone is the best math professor I have ever had and she made the class enjoyable and fun. I would highly recommend students to take her for math!

Give us a fun fact about you:

I know how to make balloon animals.

What extra-curricular activity do you enjoy the most?

I really like being a part of La Raza Latina, a cultural celebration group on campus. I have made some of my closest friends through this group. Doing service projects and organizing our annual festival event is one of the highlights of my year.

Even though you haven't left Gonzaga yet, what is your favorite memory so far?

My favorite memory so far has been studying abroad for sure! I had the best four months at the Gonzaga-in-Florence campus with friends. I became an engaged citizen abroad and now have a better global perspective.
