With less than 50 days to commencement, we've asked our seniors about their favorite activities, people and other aspects of Dean College. #waybackwednesday will feature a weekly Q&A with senior students to give YOU an inside perspective of The Dean Difference.

What is your favorite memory of your time at
My favorite memory is meeting all of my best friends living
in Mitchell House.
Who was the first friend you met during your
first year at Dean? How did you meet?
My first friend was Sabrina who is another dance major. We
met during the School of Dance audition and we have been friends ever since.
What was your all-time favorite meal at the
dining center during your time at Dean? Why?
My favorite meal at the dining hall is definitely the rare,
mac 'n' cheese pizza!
What was your favorite event (sports, club/org,
holiday, academic, etc) that you participated in during your time at Dean?
Please explain why and use detail.
My favorite event is the late-night breakfast! Seeing all
the faculty and staff members in the dining hall with my peers during finals
week is always a memory I will have. It is just a reminder at how close our
Dean community is!
Is there a specific faculty/staff member that
had a positive impact on your time here at Dean? What did they do to help you
grow as a student? What year did you meet them?
The School of Dance's athletic trainer Amanda Donahue has
made the most positive impact on my time at Dean. Ever since we met during my
freshman year she has pushed me. She has been my mentor always. Amanda has helped
me see potential in my post-grad life and has given me that push I need to
focus on being a dance therapist. I am so grateful for her guidance.
What has been the best part of senior year at
The best part of senior year has been the ability to be a
role model for the underclassman.
What advice would you give yourself as a
freshman coming into Dean?
Advice I would give my freshman self would be to "do
it". I was very timid and was apprehensive towards being involved. Getting
involved at Dean has formed me into the person I am today. I wish I had done it
What does the Dean Difference mean to you?
The Dean Difference is opportunity. The opportunity to make
friends from all over, the opportunity to make your own choices, and the
opportunity to set yourself up for success.
