Q. What drew you to UVA?
A. What initially drew me in was the ivy on all the buildings. There’s something so mysterious and ancient about it. After some research about Grounds, I discovered tons of information about architecture, secret societies and Thomas Jefferson. As a history buff, I love not only the academic and vibrant community, but how you could almost literally feel the history pour out from every crack within the bricks. The more time I spent on grounds, researching about the University, and eating at Bodo’s, the more I fell in love.
Q. What are you looking forward to at UVA?
A. I’m looking forward to an intentional community within academia. I’m looking forward to becoming best friends with girls down the hall from me. I’m looking forward to going to libraries to study. I’m looking forward to trying every place on the Corner. I’m even excited to struggle in a class in person. So many of us haven’t been able to go in person to school for the past year. So I think it’s safe to say I’m excited to make friends and to feed my curiosity.
Q. What classes are you most excited about taking?
A. As a potential philosophy, political thought and law major, I am very excited to take philosophy and challenge the way I think. Also, I would be lying If I didn’t say I was excited for astronomy. They have an observatory here – that is so cool!
