Interests

Traveling to new places, meeting people, being with my family and friends, the Olympics, dancing (especially ballet), Florida beaches, conversations over masala tea, sharing stories, musing over good music/books/movies, being a part of Covenant College, and serving the local church.


What I enjoy most about Orientation Week

I enjoy getting to meet the new students and introducing them to Covenant, a place that has been instrumental these past few years of my life. I love the excitement and suspense they come in with, and I love being able to throw open the doors to them during the orientation week.

Major

Business—Finance and Marketing


Interests

People and the things that they do. Some of the things I do: swim, climb, run, eat, read, listen, pray, and spend a lot of time with a lot of people who do really different interesting things.


What I enjoy most about Orientation Week

While all the events along the way contribute to this in very unique and fun ways, I like seeing the gradual process of new students coming in as complete strangers to then by the end of the week being right at home with some new best friends.

Minors

Music and Education


Interests

: I love writing, singing, reading, sharing life with my friends, running on the trails, drinking coffee or tea, laughing, knowing Jesus and making him known!


What I like most about Orientation Week

My favorite parts of Orientation week are the opportunities to spend time with new students in fun, relaxed settings - like in a restaurant for Chattanooga night, or in the home of a host family for dinner. I love the conversations that happen when everyone slows down, and I enjoy the chance to really listen to another person's story.

Major

English


Interests

I love spending time with my amazing family—whether we're sitting around our old oak kitchen table talking, or going to the local grocery store together for a gallon of milk. Recently, I've discovered a new found love for swing dancing, folk music, and Cherry Coke. On the weekends you'll probably find me planning adventures to neighboring lands like Chattanooga with my friends, or relishing time in a rich conversation over a bowl of veggie chips and humus in my hall's commons. Going to a school that's located on top of a mountain, I can't keep myself indoors for too long. I also love trying new kinds of sweet tea, and listening to James Taylor.


What I like most about Orientation Week

I absolutely love move-in day! Seeing new faces, and meeting new people is so fun. The atmosphere is full of excitement, and I can't get enough of welcoming new students to Covenant!

What I like most about Orientation Week

Chattanooga night. Loading up with hundreds of other students on buses and descending on the city to explore it and get some food is just great. The morning worship times are super cool too. And skit night. There's lots to love.
