Definitely I will remember the trips and experiences I have had through the Earth and Atmospheric Science Department. This semester, I'm taking two four-hour field trips a week, along with ones on weekends. It’s amazing not only getting to go to these beautiful places and understand what's going on there, but getting to go with my best friends and professors that I've had now for four years has been really great, and it really makes it a fun, kind of family-trip experience.

I met my best friends going random with roommates. I was actually in a forced triple. So there were three of us in a double-sized room and we all ended up being really, really close friends. I always like to tell the story because it ended up working out for us. We were given the chance to de-triple eventually, and we said no. So we stayed in the room, and then we got a triple the second semester!

I’ve always expected that I would be a teacher. Both my parents are teachers so I’ve grown up with it, and I just feel like I possess the correct skill set for the profession. In high school I became very interested in English, so that honed my focus. So far I’ve been loving my classes, both education classes and English classes.

During my college process, I visited many schools -- 17, actually. I just knew Oneonta was the one from the very beginning. I stepped onto campus and I knew I was at home. The entire campus is beautiful and clean, and all the faculty, staff and students I met were very welcoming. I just knew I belonged.

"I always knew that I wanted to do something in the education field, but I wasn’t sure exactly what. Later on, I took an interest in engineering and mathematics and physics, so I thought it would be a great idea to combine education and math, because I love them both."
