Favorite Lewisburg restaurant: Sushihanna. I need to eat sushi once a week or else I get super cranky.

Favorite Bucknell moment: It was seeing the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at the Weis Center. You just haven't lived until you've seen eight middle-aged British folks performing the theme from "Shaft" and "Teenage Dirtbag" on different-sized ukuleles.

Top tip for applicants: The college search process is like running a marathon. It's long, it's not particularly glamorous, and it's best when it's over and done with. Of course, no one ever says after a race they wish they'd run fewer miles. You've got to put the time in not just researching colleges and programs and resources but also thinking about what do you want out of college and who do you want to become as a result of attending one.
