Why did you choose Hobart and William Smith Colleges? I wanted a liberal arts experience and fell in love with the campus and students when I visited. 

How do you stay connected to the Colleges? Social media has been an amazing way to stay connected with class mates. I try to make it to Hobart lacrosse games when they are in the D.C. area and I can't wait to get back to campus for reunion. 

What makes the Colleges special? A combination of factors including an outstanding blend of interesting students, an engaged and concerned faculty and incredibly beautiful facilities. 

Why do you give back to HWS? Its vital to support the Colleges to keep the HWS brand exciting and relevant. Being able to continue to attract the best students is vital to the future success of the Colleges.  

What are your goals as a Regional Network volunteer? I'd like to help recent graduates tap into all the opportunities in the local area and leverage all the power of a strong alumni and alumnae network. 

What advice would you give to an incoming or current HWS student? Focus on your work, but also focus on your relationships with your classmates and faculty. These lifelong friendships will nurture your soul and your career.
