Why Bucknell: "From a graduating class of 55 girls, I knew I wanted to continue my academic career at a school that didn't feel too small where I knew everyone I saw every day, but not too big where I felt I couldn't find my place. I also really appreciate the balance I'm able to maintain with academics and social life. During my college process, ever since I visited Bucknell, I found myself comparing each of the schools on my list to Bucknell which was a sign that this is where I'm meant to be!"
Favorite place on campus: "My favorite place is Holmes Hall! Although I've never had a class in this building I love doing my work here because it's comfy!"
Campus involvement: National Society of Black Engineers, Women's Club Volleyball & New Student Orientation
