Why did you choose Moravian College?
I am majoring in biology. There are new breakthroughs occurring everyday in science and I want to be able to contribute to these. I find it incredibly interesting how everything is interconnected in our environment.
What has been your favorite course at Moravian and why?
My favorite course has been Aquatic Biology. In the labs we were actually able to go into the field and collect samples. We applied everything we learned in class to our research and it was extremely rewarding. I now know that I want to use my degree in ecological and environmental studies.
What are your plans for the future once you finish your degree at Moravian?
I hope to obtain a career in ecology and spend some time in New England.
What is your most memorable moment as a Greyhound?
How has being an athlete helped you as a student?
Being an athlete has helped me with my time management skills. Balancing classes along with sports is difficult, but it allows me to really focus on the task at hand. It has also helped develop my leadership skills. We’ve always had a small team so every person has the responsibility of being a leader.
You get out of everything what you put into it. Give 100% at practice and in games. Even on your worst days, you will feel accomplished if you give it your all. Go to the events that your team and the school is running. Support your teammates on and off the field. Enjoy it while you can because these four years fly by.
