Favorite Campus Tradition
During orientation every year the new class unravels a giant purple and gold braided ball of yarn and each new student keeps a piece. Students will tie it to their backpacks or keychains and it’s a visible symbol of the connections with your fellow incoming students. It also signals the commitment that faculty and staff have to stop what they are doing and help any first-year student that needs something during their transition.

Favorite Club and Way to Get Involved On Campus
MOVE (Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts) is a wonderful way for students to get involved in community service through service trips to helping the local community. MOVE allows students to step outside the box, and encourages them to form connections with others and the world, preparing them to become global citizens.

What I love Most About Vermont
Vermont boasts an engaging atmosphere. From Burlington’s beautiful views of Lake Champlain to friendly people all around, it’s a wonderful place to learn and grow as an individual.

Discuss a Moment When You Have Done Well or Done Good
Connecting students with resources and opportunities in their pathway to higher education has always been my personal and professional mission. I aim to continue that work and connect even more students to Saint Michael’s College.
