Major: Physics
Campus Involvement

Member of the NCAA Division III swimming team and Model United Nations club

Home Away From Home

I find the quiet space of the Wilson Library to be welcoming and a great space to learn and read.

Lessons Learned

I chose to study physics as it comprises the most fundamental understanding we have of our universe. As a physics major, I have studied rockets, designed with CAD, and used Python for data analysis. I have also enjoyed learning about matter-antimatter reactions.

Residence Life

I find that living here for me has allowed me to grow my time management skills and understanding of people from different backgrounds and cultures.

What is the best way to make new friends at University of La Verne?

Be involved in campus activities and clubs! Most of my friends I met during events on campus, which are normally organized by Campus Activities Board (CAB). I also met people by being involved in clubs and sport teams or just talking to people from my dorm.
