Favorite Thing About Western New England University

My favorite thing about WNE is the students. They are so welcoming and engaging, and I can’t walk across campus without a student waving or saying hello, even if I don’t know them.

Best Part About Springfield, MA

If I had to go to just one Springfield restaurant forever, it would be Theodore’s. Incredible BBQ and great live music, I could go every night. Although I wouldn’t say no to Hot Table or Bueno y Sano in a pinch.

3 Personal Favorite Things

  1. I am a huge math nerd and I’m getting my Master’s degree in Data Analytics.
  2. I play a lot of volleyball, both indoor and beach.
  3. I’m a massive Harry Potter fan, and read all of the books at least once per year. Ask me about my theories sometime.

1 Fun Fact

In high school, I was a competitive mountain biker, and I raced up and down 4 of the 5 biggest ski mountains in Maine.
