Favorite place for lunch in Athens

Viva! It's this cute Argentinian Restaurant on Prince Ave! They have delicious lunches and cute little cupcakes for dessert!

Favorite place on campus

On the first floor of the library there is a row of couches in front of the windows facing the quad. It's hidden behind the computer stations, and no one is ever there! I love sneaking there between classes and relaxing for a bit. I usually forget I'm studying because of the beautiful scenery!

Your advice for prospective students on how to choose a college

Follow your heart. Imagine yourself there. Can you see yourself getting involved, growing there, and making it your home? Go to the college that makes you feel like that.

Share some wisdom you've learned about how to be awesome in college

Learn to give back and cherish those around you. The relationships you build with those around you define who you are as an individual.

Your favorite memory of college so far

That would be the little moments in between all of the events, classes, and football games. The "in-betweens" when I got to know all of the girls on my dorm hall, random people in my classes, and the dining hall. Those are the best memories, the relationships formed freshman year when everyone is in the same position of not knowing anyone. I made some of my best friends that year who I know will last far beyond college and throughout my life.
