Tulane University, Junior

I love my college because….

the second I stepped onto campus, I knew that this was where I was meant to be. I didn’t even tour another college after that. It had the familiarity of home with its beautiful old buildings and huge, mossy oak trees (and let’s not forget the humidity…), but the incredible diversity of people made it feel like a whole new world, which is exactly what I was looking for. I feel like I get the best of both worlds out of my college experience at Tulane: I get to meet and make friends with people from all over the world, while also being able to visit my hometown whenever I want. What makes Tulane so special is that it is essentially its own little world within the Big Easy, offering incredible opportunities to its students. Tulanians are able to make connections with people from all over the world, and there are so many programs and clubs, not only to meet new people but also to prepare for your future. Each diverse individual plays a role in making our campus and community so unique. No matter how different you may feel, I can assure you that if you pursue your interests, you can quickly find people just like you – all the while meeting and making friends with types of people you had never connected with before! That is what makes Tulane so unique: we are all so incredibly different, but we all share in a common path that brings us together and exposes us to endless opportunities! We are all so proud to attend Tulane University, and I can assure you that you won’t see more students wearing their college gear around campus than right here at TU! #rollwave
~Only at Tulane, only in New Orleans~

I really hate when…

people walk slow on campus!!!!!!!! Or wear jeans and tennis shoes.

I major in…

I am a Neuroscience major and a Psychology minor on a Pre-Dental Track. I hope to attend dentistry school and potentially become an orthodontist.

My hometown is awesome because…

of the people, the culture, and the sense of community! It is such a great family-oriented town #LafayetteStrong


At school, you can find me…

Chi Omega Sorority – Rho chapter
Pre-Dental Society
Science and Engineering Honor Society
Woman in Science
TUNA – Tulane University Neuroscience Association
Public Health Society
Tulane Catholic
Tulane Healthy Veggie Club

The coolest class I’ve taken so far is…

All of my psychology and neuro classes thus far have been so interesting! I also really enjoyed my intro to acting class, but I don’t really think that acting is my calling….lol.

My ideal first date would be…

the whole bed of a pickup truck and picnic by a lake scene, but I’m also a big supporter of the simple and cliché dinner and a movie date.

My favorite late night study snack is definitely…

mac ‘n cheese forever.

If I had 24 hours left to live, I would…

spend it with my family and close friends, of course. Somewhere tropical and mountainous where we spend the day offshore fishing and in the afternoon eating the fish that we caught, spending the rest of the time just enjoying each others company and pursuing any possible adventures.

If I could change one thing about the world, it would be…

to stop neglect and abuse of people and animals.

I’m going to be Miss COED 2017 because…

I am ready for this new, incredible opportunity that will extend even beyond campus life. I want to serve as a representative for not only Tulane University but female students everywhere. Since I began college, I have started to become a much more well-rounded individual, and I would like to continue to do so through this exciting new adventure! Just like every student, I am looking to get the most out of my college career and I think that we need to build more positive reputations. Some see college students as lazy, immature party animals, and I hope to set a new standard through which these individuals see that this is not the case! We have all worked so hard to get to where we are today, and we know that we must continue this hard work to get to where we are meant to be and to accomplish what we were meant to accomplish. And sometimes we just have to let our hair down a little bit and enjoy the moment! College doesn’t last forever, but I fully intend to make the most out of it, and I hope to be the example in doing so as Miss COED 2017!
