What is your favorite place on campus?

It's hard to beat the environment in The Kennel during a home basketball game. I am always amazed by how much energy and passion is concentrated in one area. I also really like the Student Chapel on the third floor of College Hall. It is a very peaceful and quiet place that is great for reflection.

What about your favorite place in Spokane?

Schweitzer Mountain Resort is not necessarily in Spokane, but is a relatively short drive from Spokane. It not only offers some great skiing but also a very relaxed skiing community. It is a great place to get away from campus for a while and enjoy some great snow with your friends.

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

Physics with Dr. Kincanon is a class that every critical thinker should experience. I am convinced Dr. Kincanon knows everything about anything, and his class really challenges you to think and analyze the world around you. It is not enough to know that something in the physical world happens, but rather why and how it happens.

Give us a fun fact about you:

A family of deer lives in my backyard at home, so I would have to say that deer are my favorite animal.

What extra-curricular activity do you enjoy the most?

Apart from being a Gonzaga Ambassador, I really enjoyed being a part of the orientation team as a small group leader. I remember how welcoming my orientation experience was, so I want to help other students feel as welcomed into the Zag Family. Also, I enjoyed my Freshman Retreat experience, and hope to get involved in Campus Ministry as a retreat leader in the future.

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

I have to say that the basketball game in the Kennel on National Gonzaga Day is probably my favorite memory so far. I waited in the cold hours before the game, but the experience of watching the Zags battle to victory with my friends was totally worth it. The halftime experience, along with the whole National Gonzaga Day experience, helped me comprehend how special this community is and how honored I am to be a part of it.
