Favorite UC Memory: During the SOL Summer of 2011, I had the opportunity to live on campus in Calhoun Residence Hall with all of my fellow SOLs and Coordinators. We nearly spent every day together from the end of April to the end of August, so we became very close! When Orientation began in early June, all of the SOLs had to report to work at 5:00am to prepare for the day. On the first day I woke up with a smile, eagerly got ready and hurried out the door. It was still dark outside as I walked past Memorial Hall and through CCM circle, making my way to University Pavilion. I noticed how perfect the morning truly was. I’d never seen the sunrise over campus, and as light began to illuminate this place I dearly love, I felt so overwhelmed with joy and gratitude for the opportunity to be a student at this incredible University. I felt the whole campus wake up and begin to buzz with a familiar energy that connects everyone together. That morning, that whole summer, and my entire experience as a UC student will always provide a wealth of memories to cherish.
UC Bucket List: Complete my senior collection in Fashion Design, and to see it come alive on the runway next spring. This collection will be a compilation of my entire experience as a DAAP student— all of the skills I've been learning, practicing and perfecting, all of the emotion and the relationships I've been fortunate enough to build and sustain. This collection will be a transitional chapter of my life, an opportunity to say thank you and goodbye to all who have helped me reach this point, and a foundation to build upon as I continue to design as a professional.
