Studies She's ConsideringI plan on majoring in Neuroscience on the pre-med track, but I am also hoping to study economics and finance.

Why She Chose Holy CrossI chose Holy Cross because of the many opportunities and the close-knit environment. Everyone is so friendly and is always willing to help. There is so much pride while on campus, and I love being a part of the Holy Cross family.

ActivitiesIn my free time, I like to play tennis, golf, and volunteer.

What She's Most Looking Forward ToI am most looking forward to meeting new people and taking advantage of the countless opportunities that Holy Cross offers. Fostering relationships with both my professors and my peers is very important to me, and I am eager to get to know them better.

Why She's Blogging: I am blogging to share my experience with prospective students and families! I hope to provide a sense of relatability to those who are looking to see what life on the Hill is really like!
