Alma mater and major:
University of Notre Dame, English

Favorite place on campus:
The Knute Rockne Memorial Gymnasium, or the Rockā€”it reminds me of the basketball gyms I played in growing up.

South Bend recommendation:
Brunch! Yellow Cat Cafe is my favorite, but there are plenty of great options like The Early Bird Eatery and Roselily.

Advice to Applicants:
There are many factors to consider during your college search, but this process ultimately allows you to reflect about your own values, passions, and dreams. You have a great adventure ahead of you and, in the end, you will end up where you are meant to be!
