Why did you join USG?

I joined DAC to help ensure that every student felt fairly represented and to help bring positive change to our Fordham community

What are you hoping to accomplish this year?

My biggest goal for this semester is to increase the programming we do outside the gates and engage with our local community more. I also hope to bring commuter perspectives to DAC and USG as a whole!

What is your hometown?

Washington, D.C.

What has been your favorite class at Fordham so far?

I can’t pick. Some standouts are definitely Invitation to Theatre, Philosophical Ethics, Research Methods Lab, Basic Microeconomics, Psychology and Human Values, and Statistical Decision Making. Could not be more all over the place.


What is your favorite thing about Fordham?

The cats on the beautiful campus, the local people who surround our campus and the businesses they bring
