Campus Involvement

I am involved as head commuter ambassador, a sister of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority, Vice President of Chemistry Forensic club, Standards for Students Committee, Student Conduct Review Committee, N.I.A mentor, Chief Justice for Inter Greek Association, Orange Crush Committee, and Team Lead for the B.E.A.T Team.

Why Did I Choose Buffalo State

I chose Buffalo State because it is close to home as well as for my major, which is a certified program by the American Chemical Society at Buffalo State.

Favorite Spot On Campus

My favorite spot on campus is the Chemistry club room in the new Science and Math Complex.

Most Memorable Experience

My most memorable experience on campus was being President of my sorority.

Long Term Goal After Graduation

I am hoping to attend a graduate program to recieve my Ph.D in Pathology and eventually work in a lab at a hospital and run for coroner.

Fun Fact

I am obsessed with giraffes!

Advice to Incoming Freshman

The best advice I would give to an incoming freshman is to get involved while you are here, network, set up a resume and make the most of all the resources at your disposal before you graduate.
