1: Describe your Colgate experience so far in a few sentences?

Colgate has been “like a wake-up”. I have grown up so much. Although the school is challenging in multiple ways, it will pay off in the future.


2: What activities are you involved in on campus?

I am a Varsity Track & Field athlete, and I am also involved with Thought Into Action (Colgate’s student entrepreneurship program).

3: What is the most challenging thing about being a student-athlete?

Being a student-athlete means you are tired. Those 6 a.m. lifts with those long nights mean you have to have great time management. It can be stressful at times. But I love track and field because it gives me the sports community and friends. It also connects me to more alumni. I also love to challenge myself.
