How do you stay connected to the Colleges? I stay connected through friends from HWS, by following news and sports results involving the Colleges and attending alumni events.

What makes the Colleges special? The personal relationships with those in the HWS community that endure forever beyond our years on campus is to me, what makes the Colleges special.

Why do you give back to HWS? I believe that HWS benefits from our input of time and money. I believe that HWS is and will continue to be a better place than when we were there.

What are your goals as a Regional Network volunteer? Improve awareness about HWS on the West Coast as a viable alternative for undergraduate education and improve alumni and alumnae contributions of time and financial support.

What advice would you give to an incoming or current HWS student? Get involved in as much as possible on campus and take advantage of the accessibility of professors in the small classroom environment.
