Favorite thing about being a UMass Amherst Student: All of our wacky traditions! Lobster and steak on Halloween?! The BEST.

Most interesting thing you’ve done or place you’ve been as part of your UMass experience: The UPC (University Programming Council) Color Run was quite the experience! Jogging a mile around campus while being sprayed with paint remains one of the highlights of my time here at UMass.

Any words of advice for new students?: College will be the most vibrant, fantastic, fun-filled time of your life, but it can also be wildly draining. Self care is SO crucial. Call your mom, wash your sheets, drink some tea, go for a walk, and most importantly, make time for yourself.

Interests/Hobbies/Spare Time Activities: Active member of Hillel, Alpha Chi Omega, Sinai Scholars, and participant of UMass Birthright to Israel. (Extreme) Lover of breakfast foods, theater, "The Office," and the chicken and goat cheese sandwich from the Procrastination Station (Seriously try it, it's life-changing).
