Favorite spot on campus and why?

My favorite spot on campus would have to be either the Student Union, because there is always something going on there and you kind of have everything there like food, study spots, music, movies and places to just hang out and catch up with friends. I also really like the Botanical Gardens. It's just a really peaceful place to relax, take your mind of things and enjoy the beautiful scenery. 

What has been your favorite memory at UNC Charlotte?

There have been a lot of memories, but I think my favorite is meeting some of my closest friends. They really made this experience one to remember and we have literally watched each other evolve into some amazing adults. I wouldn't change anything!

Most valuable lesson learned during your college career? 

I think the most valuable lesson I've learned is that it's okay to not know where life is going to take you. I always thought that by the time I graduated college, I would have life figured out, but that isn't always the case. I'm still figuring it all out & in the end everything will fall into place, at its own time.
