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

I love Notre Dame and really wanted to help set the tone for the new Fighting Irish! Welcome Weekend really jumpstarts involvement at Notre Dame by quickly engulfing each person in our culture. It sounds overwhelming, but it's one of the best ways to understand why we do things the way we do. Notre Dame is truely a special place, and I can't wait to share it with all of the first-year students. Also I heard we have access to a golf cart.

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

"SOS" by either the Jonas Brothers or Rihanna, both are karoke favorites. Oh and the Mulan soundtrack!

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

An absurdly large amount of command hooks and some Downy Wrinkle Releaser. I promise this was not clever product placement. These are life savers.
