Campus Involvement

I am involved as Chief Justice of USG, Commuter Ambassador Program and Love Your Melon Campus Crew.

Why Did I Choose Buffalo State

I chose Buffalo State because it is a smaller campus with small classroom sizes also because it is a family school for me.

Favorite Spot On Campus

My favorite spot on campus is the Campbell Student Union, because there is always something to do there, food, and a place to relax.

Most Memorable Experience

My most memorable experience on campus was working with the USG Judicial Council has been very memorable for me. I get the opportunity to practice what I want to when I graduate. I also get the chance to meet with multiple college officials and professors to work on student involvement.

Long Term Goal After Graduation

I am hoping to attend law school and later on become a criminal defense attorney, I also want to work on getting my masters in higher education while attending law school as well.

Fun Fact

I spent all my high school years preparing to be a music education/performance major. I was in band, choir, musicals, marching band, and the performing arts academy at my school. When I applied to college I changed my mind at the end of my senior year, and wanted to pursue law instead.

Advice to Incoming Freshman

The best advice I would give to an incoming freshman is to learn time management skills quickly and do not spread yourself too thin. Also get involved you don’t want to just be worried about schooling, it can take a lot out of you.
