Anything with peanut butter and chocolate.

Favorite season:
My favorite season is Fall. I love the beautiful colors of the leaves on the trees and then raking the fallen ones into piles to jump into with my niece and nephew.

I also co-advise the Gold Key Society, which hands down was one of my favorites clubs as a student. 

Favorite Place on Campus:
Without a doubt the Gibson Theatre stage. Throughout my four years as an undergraduate, I helped out with a variety of different productions (Sweet Charity, Noises Off, etc.). It would not be uncommon for me to leave afternoon classes and camp out in the Theatre when we were in the busy stages of rehearsing. Now as an Admissions Counselor, not only do I love seeing the current theatre productions, but I also try to make it to as many Odyssey performances as possible.
