Favorite thing about SPU: I’d have to say the prime campus location. Seattle has everything I love: great food, fresh air, an amazing creative scene, and tons of major companies. Plus, it’s a 30-minute drive from all of the greatest outdoor activities. To put it simply, SPU provides you with access to amazing experiences AND an awesome community to experience it with! It’s been five years since I moved here and I still can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Hobbies & Fun Facts: I’m an avid rock climber who eats way too many chocolate Pop-Tarts and watches the show Friends on a daily basis.
