Favorite thing about being a UMass Amherst Student:  Being able to participate in the University of Massachusetts Minutemen Marching Band.

Most interesting thing you’ve done or place you’ve been as part of your UMass experience: My most memorable moment (so far) at UMass was playing with the UMass Minutemen Marching Band at Fenway Park to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Any words of advice for new students?:  Be able to build up your time management skills. You no longer have your parents here making your schedule, and you have a lot more free time. There is a lot less class time, and a lot more free time in your schedule. Be sure to not slack during this substantial amount of free time, and try to understand how much time your classwork is going to take up. The best thing to do may be to get a schedule or a planner.

Interests/Hobbies/Spare Time Activities:  My hobbies and interests include playing the saxophone, playing ultimate Frisbee, basketball, and also playing video games based off of sports. I also love to listen to pop and rap music.
