Favorite spot on campus or memory: “My favorite spot on campus is just outside of Saint Francis Chapel, right in front of the Saint Ignatius statue, looking towards the clock tower. I think it is one of the most beautiful spots on campus.”

Get to know your professors during office hours, they will be great resources even after you graduate. It is important to plan ahead but don’t forget to be present and enjoy all the wonderful things Carroll has to offer.”
