Studies: Economics & Computer Science and Political Science

Hometown: Weston, Florida

“I chose WashU because it seemed like the best place for me to get a fresh start. I was undecided in what I wanted to study, and I liked how WashU made it easy to explore different areas of study across the schools. For the last three semesters, I’ve had at least one class in arts sci, the B school, and in engineering each semester. The environment seemed welcoming and collaborative instead of overly competitive, but I knew I would still be challenged here academically. I also wanted to meet people from across the country and try new activities instead of continuing things like debate from high school, and WashU was a great place to do that.”

Favorite Place on Campus:

My favorite place on campus is definitely Law Cafe. It’s a beautiful spot and always feels very collaborative with students sitting around tables together. It’s also the home of Mac and Cheese Thursdays, which is my favorite meal of the week.
