Kristin Andrejko ’19
I am a junior science-business major from Cary, North Carolina, and I live in Walsh Hall on campus! Interested in the intersections between international development, human-centered design, and global health, I am also a poverty studies minor and a member of the Glynn Family Honors Program. I have spent my summers at Notre Dame conducting malaria research in South Africa and updating global vaccine policy at the World Health Organization in Switzerland. On campus, I lead the committee that designs “The Shirt” for each football season, and I created one of the first collegiate jump rope teams at Notre Dame!
Adriana Cantos ’18
Hi everyone! My name is Adriana Cantos and I am a senior from Boca Raton, Florida. I am majoring in neuroscience and behavior with a minor in science, technology, and values. Aside from working with the admissions team, I also like to participate in other activities and clubs at Notre Dame. I am president of the Notre Dame Medical Observers and vice president of the Student Coalition for Immigration Advocacy (SCIA). I also spend my time volunteering at a local hospital and working in the Attention and Attention Disorders research lab on campus. I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to come to Notre Dame on this visitation weekend four years ago. I was able to explore student life and make some of my current best friends. I hope that I can help other prospective students gain the same experience. Go Irish!
Jahlecia Gregory ’20
I am sophomore living in Pasquerilla East Hall. My major is neuroscience and behavior with a minor in Africana Studies on the pre-med track. In other words, I love science and the humanities and everything in between (except math). Additionally, I am also from South Florida (so, yes, the cold will forever be a shock but it’s definitely worth it). I spend my (precious) free time watching Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy, trying not to eat all of the food in the Duncan Student Center, and counting down the days until I can finally meet Michelle Obama (keep hope alive right?).
Brendan Haggerty ’18
Hey guys! My name’s Brendan, and I’m a senior mechanical engineering major from Boca Raton, Florida, currently living off-campus, but formerly of Keenan Hall. On campus, you can usually find me working on robots in the basement of Fitzpatrick for Notre Dame’s Robotic Football team, laboring over homework in LaFortune, or playing basketball at Moreau Seminary. I love football weekends, breakfast food, staying up late, wearing backwards hats, burger night at North Dining Hall, and creating monthly playlists on Spotify when I should be studying for exams. I can’t wait to share my love for Notre Dame and my experiences as a student with all of you!
Helena James ’19
Hello everyone! My name is Helena James, and I am from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I am a junior studying business analytics with a minor in the Hesburgh Program in Public Service. In addition to being a student recruitment coordinator on the Reilly Spring Visit Program team, I serve as a student representative on the Advisory Committee For Student Climate Related to Race and Ethnicity under Vice President of Student Affairs Erin Hoffmann Harding. I am also the multicultural commissioner for Flaherty Hall. I work in the Office of Information Technology and I am involved in research as a student data analyst. I have had wonderful experiences thanks to the opportunities Notre Dame has to offer. I spent one summer teaching refugee youth, another involved in an internship, and this summer, I will also have an internship. I have taken several trips within and outside of the United States to further my understanding of the intersectionality of social justice and faith. Overall, I have formed amazing and long-lasting relationships with the people here. When I was invited to visit Notre Dame as a high school senior, I was blown away by the dedication to community, family, and service Notre Dame embodies. Please let me know if you have any questions, whether they are about the Mendoza College of Business, learning how to navigate Notre Dame, or anything else! I hope to see you soon! Go Irish!

Hello! My name is Harisa Spahic, and I consider myself a townie since I am from Granger, Indiana. At Notre Dame, I live in McGlinn Hall and major in biochemistry with two minors: anthropology and science, technology, and values. Through my biochemistry major, I have been fortunate to conduct research in two laboratories on campus, one clinical and the other basic science. Outside of class, I enjoy working on our yearly student home with Habitat for Humanity, conducting nutrition talks at the South Bend Shelter for the Homeless with Social Justice in American Medicine, and exploring the local Michiana area with friends! My Notre Dame experience has been international as well as I have been fortunate to travel to Denmark, Ireland, Greece, and Ecuador through research, study abroad, and extracurriculars. After graduation, I will be attending medical school, which would not have been possible without my experiences shadowing through Notre Dame Medical Observers or volunteering with South Bend's Center for Hospice Care. I cannot wait to meet you during the Reilly Spring Visit Program and share how special Notre Dame has been for me and can be for you!
