  • What is the best part of living on campus?
  • It’s the proximity to everything—the food, my classes, the library, and Matthew Knight Arena. Everything is here.
  • What would you tell a first-year student about your housing experience?
  • When you live in Housing, you have access to a wide range of perspectives and experiences. Use this opportunity to better understand who you are and where you want to go with your life.
  • What are you involved in on campus?
  • Through the National Residence Hall Honorary, I use my experience of living in the halls to help determine how to make living in the halls an even better experience. On Hall Government I have an advisory role in which I help peers do the things they want to do. As a Psychology Peer Lab Leader, I help psychology students understand concepts through interactive activities. And, as a co-radio DJ, my friend and I flood the Eugene airways with inane banter and snappy music. I am also an avid supporter of the Museum of Natural and Cultural History. I’ve solidified friendships at their monthly trivia contests at the Buzz.
  • What is your favorite meal on campus?
  • Barnhart Brunch, bar none, is the best meal on campus. The combination of French toast, sliced banana and chocolate sauce alone is enough, but then you add an egg bar? Game over.
  • What was move-in day like?
  • Move-in day was hectic and stressful. Boxes of my personal possessions moved to a new, foreign environment, while loads of unfamiliar faces passed by. But it’s also a day of promise. Some of the unfamiliar faces became friends who I cannot imagine experiencing life without.
  • What does it mean to be a Duck?
  • Being a Duck means trying your best in all of your endeavors. Being a Duck means being respectful and being inclusive. Being a Duck means I can yell “SCODUCKS” in a crowd of people and other people will respond, not with scowls or looks of confusion and disgust, but with the same rallying cry.
