What is your favorite campus tradition? Game days; it brings everyone together in a way I have never seen before!
What is your favorite spot on campus? The pier on St. Joseph Beach, St. Joseph Lake. No matter the time of year, the water below the Dome is something that neither words nor a photo could do justice.
What is your best Notre Dame memory? HISE, specifically having the honor to meet Father Hesburgh and personally ask him a question!
What is your favorite Dining Hall Meal? Make your own Mac & Cheese
What is your favorite thing about dorm life? That you are around so many people your age and of different backgrounds. It enabled me to meet so many people in such a short time span. Interhall rivalry is also very unique and creates a sense of belonging to your dorm.
What clubs/activities are you involved in? Wall Street Club, Club Baseball of Notre Dame, Student International Business Council (SIBC)
What made you choose Notre Dame? Ranking, alumni network and connections, morals and ethics.
What is your favorite part about being an international student at Notre Dame? I love that it is a great conversation starter. So many are truly interested in learning about your story, where you came from, and what you have done to get to and choose Notre Dame.
How did you adjust to life on campus? I put myself out there! While it is much harder than it sounds, everyone is in the same boat. I also joined way too many clubs to begin with but it helped me meet a lot of people!
How do you celebrate your culture/heritage at ND? I like to keep everyone updated in news happening back home! Most people are open-minded and want to hear what is happening in other countries.
What advice do you have for international students? Living internationally is no doubt a challenge. However, you have both so much to learn from life in America and so much to offer others with regards to opening minds. Being international makes you unique and the diverse aspect has so much to share with such a great University. It is hard to grow without diversity amongst people and alternative ways of thinking brought about by unique and different experiences.
