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

Welcome Weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the school year because it gives me the opportunity to give back to the community that made me feel so welcomed in the Fall of 2013. I have been a part of Welcome Weekend ever since I was a First Year. As a Sophomore, I was one of Ryan Hall's ambassadors and as a Junior I participated while serving as Ryan Hall's president. This year, as a Senior, I am excited for the opportunity to welcome families of the class of 2020 and help them find their home away from home as a member of the Orientation Steering Committee.

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

Artist - Pitbull; Song - Time of our Lives

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

I am definitely grateful that I decided to pack a pair of rain boots for college. It sounds silly, especially since I never owned a pair in Miami, but trust me, you'll need them.
