Why did you join USG?

I joined USG because I knew it would be a great way to get involved on campus, while also being able to make an impact on the student experience at Fordham. Additionally, I wanted to be around other students who had similar goals as me and want to make a positive impact at our school. I also specifically loved FCRH Dean’s Council because I believe it is important to have strong connections between the students and the Administration and Deans, which Dean’s Council continuously gets to work towards!

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

I plan on working towards three major initiatives/programming this academic year. First, I want to create a student mentorship program where upperclassmen students and alumni can mentor underclassmen within their major. Second, I want to create a streamlined process for finding research opportunities within FCRH departments. And third, I want to improve the career readiness seminar for FCRH students. Additionally, I want to continuously increase the connection between the Fordham Administration and the students.

What is your hometown?

Bel Air, Maryland

What has been your favorite class at Fordham so far?
