What year are you, and what is your major?

I’m a junior majoring in biology.

Are you in any sports or extracurricular activities?

I like to play in the intramural sports if that counts.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like exercising and staying active through sports like basketball, football, and soccer.

What is one interesting fact about yourself that most people don’t know?

I have a pet turtle. I’ve had him for 17 years, and his name is Little Guy.

What made you want to become a C.A.?

Being a peer leader helped me to get to know a lot of freshmen. I have also lived on campus all three years, so I thought it would be cool to take on the ultimate resident role.

What are your goals/plans for this semester as a C.A.?

I want the residents to be able to bond, hang out inside and outside of the residence hall, and to also be able to communicate better with one another.

Do you have any programs planned for this semester?

Well, I’m from Philly, so I want to have a Penguins vs. Flyers party, where residents can come eat snacks and watch the game in the commons area.

What is one thing you want your residents to know about you?

I’d like to show them that you can do a bunch of different things, be involved, and still achieve in academics.

Would you recommend being a C.A.?

I would because it is a great way to get to know everybody, and it’s a really good leadership opportunity.

What year are you, and what is your Major?

I’m a junior and majoring in psychology. I want to be an occupational therapist after getting my master’s degree.

Are you in any sports or extracurricular activities?

I’m a part of Habitat for Humanity, and I’m going on the spring break trip to Alabama, so I’m really excited for that.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to relax, watch Netflix, or read a book.

What is one interesting fact about yourself that most people don’t know?

I am obsessed with travel mugs. I have a whole collection. I always like to have something to drink, and I’m really obsessed with Turner’s Tea.

What made you want to become a C.A.?

It is a great opportunity to meet new people and get involved.

What are your goals/plans for this semester as a C.A.?

I want to get the residents of the University Courts to come together as a whole. I hope to help others make new and long-lasting friendships like I’m making with the other C.A’s.

Do you have any programs planned for this semester?

I’m planning DIY snow globes with another C.A. but also mugs, and other things that feel warm since it is cold outside.

What is one thing you want your residents to know about you?

I’m not their enemy, and I’m not out to get them, but I am here as a friend.

Would you recommend being a C.A.?

I would recommend it because it is a great opportunity and very rewarding to have been chosen as a CA.

Are you planning on returning as a C.A. next year?

Yes, I would like to.
