What Is Your Favorite Central College Tradition? My favorite Central tradition is Service Day. Service Day is great because it gives all of us — students, faculty and staff — a chance to interact with friends and new people as we serve the communities surrounding Central that have given so much to students and the college.
What Is Your Most Memorable Experience at Central College Thus Far? The most memorable experience I have had at Central have come from playing on the men’s tennis team and having off-campus experiences studying in Mérida, Mexico.
What’s a Fun Fact About You? I love to travel! I have visited 48 states, 35 American national parks and 15 foreign countries.
