    What is your favorite memory of your time at Dean?

    My favorite memory of my time here at Dean is all the opportunities of involvement Dean has offered and the programming that is incorporated into it.

    Who was the first friend you met during your first year at Dean? How did you meet?

    I was a transfer student, so at first, making friends and fitting in was difficult. Luckily, I had my sister here who was able to meet a lot of new friends and I was able to become friends with them as well.

    What was your all-time favorite meal at the dining center during your time at Dean? Why?

    My all-time favorite meal at the dining center isn't really a meal, but a type of dinner. It was the late-night breakfast near the end of finals.

    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 during my time at Dean was Winter Days because I was able to be a part of the planning process, staff the event, and still participate in all the activities we have to offer to the Dean Community.

    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?

    I have had many wonderful teachers who have impacted me during my time here at Dean but I think the most influential person is Elizabeth Cooper. She recognizes my opportunities and gives me that extra push to succeed. I met her when I starting becoming involved my second semester sophomore year.

    What has been the best part of senior year at Dean?

    The best part of senior year at Dean would be the planning process of going to grad school.

    What advice would you give yourself as a freshman coming into Dean?

    My advice I would give myself as an incoming freshman at Dean would be to become highly involved. It opens a world of opportunities and helps you to become a more holistic and marketable student.

    What does the Dean Difference mean to you?

    The Dean Difference to me means community, growth, and passion.
