Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?

I chose Vanderbilt because it felt most like home when I came on my visits and it gave me the opportunity to play in a tough conference while getting a really good education that would pay off in the long run.

What are your career goals?

I plan on going into sports marketing and I plan on staying in Nashville.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?

To be successful academically at Vanderbilt, you have to be willing to always work hard, make sacrifices to use your time wisely, and always stay caught up no matter how many classes you miss due to sports.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?

To manage my demanding schedule, I make a new To-Do list each week that includes everything for class and I make sure to do a couple things each day. Whether it is splitting time between writing a paper and studying for a test, just having a goal of what I will accomplish each day really helps.

What is your ritual before taking a test?

I don’t have one.
