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 Scarleteen.com. 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.
