Being a graduate assistant/REC for the Office of Housing and working with tremendous student leaders who constantly challenge me and keep me laughing.

What degree(s) are you earning? What do you plan on doing after graduation? 

I earned by Masters of Arts in History and I plan on attending John Hopkins University in Fall 2017. 

Most valuable lesson learned during your college career? 

The most valuable lesson I learned throughout my college career was to start assignments early whether it was connection to potential thesis readers or starting outlines/final projects months before papers were due. This is the cure to procrastination.
