Why did you want to be part of Notre Dame's Orientation Steering Committee?

I was fortunate enough to serve as a member of FUEL, a department of Student Government comprised of first-year students. In our meetings, we often discussed our experiences of Welcome Weekend, in order to provide feedback about programming. As a student who was born and raised in South Bend, Notre Dame felt like home long before I even moved in to my residence hall. After hearing my peers' different experiences, I wanted to be a part of the Orientation Steering Committee in order to share my home with new students, and to help them make it their own.

What is one of your favorite guilty pleasure songs or artists?

The Jonas Brothers! They're my go-to for road trips.

What is the one item that you brought with you to college that you were really grateful you decided to pack?

A tool box. Since not many other people packed one, it got a lot of use in my residence hall!
