What is your favorite spot on campus? The shaded area outside the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus. It's a lovely place, but knowing the roof is covered in solar panels makes it pretty incredible. During the school year, there's a DJ during lunch, making it a lively and sustainable place to relax.

What is a program or experience that you think a student should check out here at ASU? Take advantage of some of the 1,000 clubs and organizations. The more involved you are, the more you can take ownership of your education and college experience.

What is your advice for surviving the weather? Hydrate and plan ahead. For example, if you're walking across campus to catch the shuttle, make sure you leave at an appropriate time and take the right route so you're not standing in the sun for too long waiting for the bus.

On the weekend you can find me... Trying out the restaurants on Mill Avenue in Tempe (and stopping by Slickables Ice Cream Sandwich Shop after).

What is your advice for the college search and application process? Create an email address just for college correspondence. It makes things much easier when organizing and might keep you from missing an email that could mean the difference between receiving scholarships or even gaining admission

Maroon or Gold: Both!
