Why I love working at Hampshire: The students! Prospective students and Hampshire students alike.

Piece of advice in the college admissions process: First would be to do your homework. Research the schools that you are interested in, visit them if at all possible, and ask lots of questions! Second, be sure to adhere to deadlines! 

A random fact about me: Huge sports fan, but my one true love is hockey! Go Bruins!

Favorite spot in the Pioneer Valley: I love the valley, born and raised, but my happy place is the ocean and it's not too far away!


Nothing will ever take the place of an experience.
