Distance (miles) from your hometown to K?


Favorite spot to study?

anywhere outside in the Spring, even though it’s never very productive.

Favorite thing about the city of Kalamazoo?

the $5 movies at the Alamo and the lobster fondue at the Union, because they’re both great and within a 15 minute walk from campus.

Favorite piece of “K” gear?

my Dad got me a football jersey from the 70’s on Ebay that is super comfy.

Favorite part about your K-Plan?

I went on Study Abroad to Germany and while I was there applied for and got an awesome internship at the National Archives in DC for the summer, great example of the K-Plan at work and both were amazing experiences! It resulted in me only spending about a week at home all year, but made me feel super independent and gave me confidence for after graduation.

Favorite season in Michigan and why?

I especially love Spring at K because everyone is back from Study Abroad and hangs out on the Quad all the time – its a really great and happy atmosphere on campus, and the first outdoor practice for Frisbee after a long winter indoors is the best!
