ACTIVITIES AT F&M:

Why did you choose to transfer to Franklin & Marshall?

"I had originally looked at F&M during my college search. I was going through a difficult time in my life and needed a change. I came to F&M and felt at home on campus and knew it was the place for me. I loved the academic rigor, the high-caliber athletics, and the opportunities F&M had to offer on campus." 

What has been your favorite part of your F&M experience since you joined the community?

"Creating and legitimizing The Pizza Project. It’s a sentimental organization to me, and I have been so grateful for the overwhelming support. I am so excited to continue growing the organization and breaking the stigma associated with mental health on campus by providing resources that can help every student on campus."
