Distance (miles) from your hometown to K?

748 mi

Favorite spot to study?

On my bed.

Favorite thing about the city of Kalamazoo and why?

Faygo Soda.  They just don’t make stuff as good as that on Long Island.

Favorite season in Michigan?

I love the beginning of winter when the bucket loads of snow are still beautiful.  I love to go sledding down the hill, possibly on an old cafeteria tray.

Favorite part about study abroad?

Traveling on my own from Beijing to Yunan Province in Southern China.  I was able to see some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen while also getting the opportunity to plan this trip on my own.  I felt like I developed a strong sense of independence on this trip.

Favorite piece of K gear?

A vintage banner that an alumna gave me from the late 80s.  This alumna is also the woman who introduced me to K College.
