Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: 
UD’s close-knit community, exceptional Core curriculum and impressive student body are what sets it apart for me. At UD, students are able to explore their intellectual curiosities more intimately, and I hope to impart this fact onto potential new students.

Favorite Spot on Campus: 
While exploring campus, I really enjoyed walking along the Mall and relaxing under the trees. 

Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas?
I recently started climbing so you can find me at Summit Gyms across Dallas. I also love walking my dogs around the Bishop Arts District.

Favorite Book:
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami

Favorite Place to Eat in DFW:
Cosmic Cafe on Oaklawn. Not only does it have an amazing black bean burger but its ambiance is one-of-a-kind.

Favorite UD Event:
I haven't had the opportunity to experience any UD events, but I’m looking forward to Groundhog.

Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited:
I recently returned from living abroad in Japan where I got to explore a completely new culture. Japan’s nature and food were incredible, and I hope to visit again.

Advice to Prospective Students:
Visit the campus! The best way to get the full UD experience is to meet with students and professors.
