Why did you choose Belmont?
The Business school is by far the best out of all the colleges I looked at, and I love how close we can work with our peers and professors due to the smaller class sizes. It allows us to really connect with each other, which is great for group projects, networking, tutoring, and all kinds of things like that. Plus, my house is about 20 minutes away, and my mom will happily bring me snickerdoodles whenever I need them, which is definitely a good perk.

Why did you choose to be a Tour Guide?
I was actually split between two other colleges before I finally decided to officially take a tour of Belmont (as compared to just coming here to hang out with friends and stuff). I’ll never forget the impact that day had on my college decision, and I know that I made the right choice by coming here.  I chose to be a Tour Guide so I can hopefully give others that same feeling.

What is your favorite on-campus event?
Pembroke Hall’s Haunted House. Even though I’m (sadly) not living there anymore, I still plan on going every year that I physically can.

What is your favorite movie?
It's a tie between Super Troopers, Highlander, and all three Back To The Future movies.

What is your favorite song & artist/band?
My favorite song is a tie between Move Along by The All-American Rejects, Roundabout by Yes, Reapers by Muse, and YYZ by Rush. Band/artist is a tie between Muse, Rush, and Kendrick Lamar.

What would you want to be your last meal on earth?
The Woodstock Burger from BurgerUp (medium rare, no ketchup) with fries, a glass of whole milk (preferably Purity DairyPure), and an orange Fanta.

What is your favorite Nashville experience?
It's a tie between two concerts: Rush at Bridgestone Arena and Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band at the Ryman.

What is your dream career after graduating from Belmont?
International trade relations for a Fortune 500 (or even Fortune 100) company.

What is your favorite class that you have taken at Belmont and why?
I took Principles of Microeconomics last summer to get some of my Business-required economics credits out of the way. The material of the course wasn’t that entertaining, admittedly, but the projects and presentations we did were actually a lot of fun to put together and present, so that made up for it.

If you could go back in time and give advice about college to 16-17 year old you, what would you say?
1.Even though college is about independence, remember that you’re there to learn, and be sure to make time for that outside of all the Super Smash Bros. and late-night fast-food runs.
2.Speaking of fast-food, the Freshman 15 is VERY real. Remember that the Fitness and Recreation Center exists, and be sure to go to it. Often. Very often.
