What is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite place on campus is definitely the Crosby Student Center.  You can never go around campus without seeing someone you know, and Crosby is a place, just by coincidence, where you can see most of your friends and to just be social.

What about your favorite place in Spokane?

My favorite place in Spokane is Wonderland Family Fun Center. I've only been once but it's a big arcade for kids and adults. Along with arcade games, they have minigolf, go karts, and a zipline! You can even do indoor, glow-in-the-dark minigolf!

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

A class that I have enjoyed the most is my Advanced Broadcasting class. It allows students, especially broadcast majors like me, to experience a real life broadcasting environment. It really pushes you to be creative in your visual storytelling.

Give us a fun fact about you:

Along with my interest in freestyle rapping, I also have 2 false teeth.

What extra-curricular activity do you enjoy the most?

I really enjoy the a cappella group I am involved in, The Big Bing Theory. As a musician, it allows me to be expressive and entertain people who share in our interest of not just a cappella but in all music.

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

My favorite memory from GU is being a part of GEL Weekend. That whole weekend, seeing potential GU students, it made me prideful to show this school to these future Zags and that even though some of them have not yet committed, that even expressing interest in my school can mean the world to the students here.
