What I want prospective students to know about Purchase: There are lots of​ ways to get involved on campus, whether it’s through one of our sixty-something clubs, a sports team, or a part-time job. If you have an idea for an event or program, you can make it happen!

The reason I became an Ambassador: I love talking to people about Purchase! I want to help graduating high school students find a college where they feel at home, like I did when I came to Purchase.

My favorite spot on campus: The Library!​

Why I chose Purchase: I decided to come to Purchase while I was taking a tour of campus. I just felt like I belonged here.​

My hobbies and interests: I’m a sex educator on campus and on I also love to cook, knit, and play music.

Future plans after Purchase: I plan on continuing to teach sex ed, hopefully working with Planned Parenthood. 

What “Think Wide Open” means to me: Be open to trying new things. Don’t make assumptions based on appearances.
