Why did you choose to transfer to Franklin & Marshall?
"I transferred to F&M because I wanted to have a closer relationship with my professors and classmates. At my previous institution (a large public university), I felt like just a number in the classroom where I would wait for hours at office hours just to have one question answered. Since coming to F&M, I have definitely been able to better know my professors because of the much smaller environment and numerous opportunities that I have to speak with them—even during a pandemic. F&M was one of my top choices when I first applied in high school and I remembered its uniqueness when I began applying as a transfer student."
What has been your favorite part of your F&M experience since you joined the community?
"My favorite part of my F&M experience has definitely been my friends (now roommates). I was able to find some of the best people in the world in my hallway, and they are making my senior year at F&M so much better. From weekly trips to Central Market to binge watching old seasons of Big Brother, they have made my F&M experience so much fun, and they remind me every day that I made the right choice to come to Lancaster."
