What do you like most about Le Moyne?
My favorite thing about Le Moyne isn't really a thing,
it's people. The people at Le Moyne College make up a vibrant community. During my time as a student, I made strong and supportive friendships and met talented, brilliant people who challenged my worldview and made me better through the process. My professors worked with me in the classroom and taught me research habits, academic skills, and taught me to question. Outside of the classroom, my professors got to know me as a person, supported me, and inspired me. Le Moyne is large enough to continue to meet new people, but small enough to foster genuine connections that transcend the college experience and carry on even after graduation.
I love visiting cities that I've never seen before and scratching countries off of my scratch map. I enjoy voraciously reading novels, essays, poetry, screenplays, works in translation and more. I write short stories and poetry, and paint, draw and graphic design. I love being involved in theatre in any capacity, and am a member of the New York City-based artist collective, The Chaos Collective. I also am passionate about being an active member of my community.
Involvement in college?
During my time at Le Moyne I was very active in the Performing Arts Center! I was the graphic designer for Boot n' Buskin, vice president of the Le Moyne College Improv Club, worked behind the scenes of the shows, as well as performed on stage. Some of my favorite shows that I worked on were: Boot n' Buskin's She Kills Monsters
in which I played Tilly (a role for which I received an Irene Ryan Nomination through the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival), Macbeth
performed in conjunction with the orchestra and with women playing all roles, and The Visit
, the inaugural performance for Boot n' Buskin's Laboratory Theatre. I also read papers at the annual Literature and Culture Conference and attended events with the English Club. I was inducted into Tau Sigma, the national honor society for transfer students, Alpha Sigma Nu, the honor society for Jesuit College and Universities, and Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society. I also worked in the Admissions Office and as a tour guide.
Favorite thing about Syracuse:
I love the local businesses, restaurants, and experiences that Syracuse has to offer! Some of my personal favorite restaurants are Funk n' Waffles, Dorian's Gourmet Pizza and Deli, and Pastabilities. I enjoy seeing live concerts at the Westcott Theater, checking out new exhibits or watching a movie outside at the Everson Museum, and attending the Westcott Street Cultural Fair in the fall. Syracuse also has a burgeoning theatre scene and I love to catch local productions as well as touring Broadway productions, right in Syracuse!
