Favorite Class at Olivet: My favorite class at Olivet was Professional Image and Dress. This class provides a better understanding of proper business etiquette and professionalism.

Best Olivet memory: I had the opportunity to be a part of the 2016 baseball Conference Championship team. We raised the banner on opening day of the next season. I was able to make lifelong friends playing for ONU baseball.

Favorite ONU prof and why: My favorite ONU prof is Professor Thomas. His passion to lead students in business and in faith is encouraging to those around him. He uses his passion for teaching as a platform for his faith.

Hobbies: I have played sports since I could walk. I have always enjoyed playing baseball and basketball in particular. I am also learning to play guitar.

Favorite extracurricular activity as a student: I played four years for Olivet’s baseball team. I also enjoyed playing intramurals with my friends.

Favorite college trip: I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Puerto Rico during my time at Olivet. Our baseball team was able to exemplify love, serve, care to their culture.

Advice for new students: Enjoy every moment at Olivet. Do not be timid to step outside your comfort zone. Take advantage of every opportunity to be a part of the community here at ONU.

Favorite place to eat in town: Brickstone is my favorite place to eat in town. I have been dining there since my freshman year of college. My parents also enjoy eating there when they visit.

Favorite campus tradition: The Wacky Games are my favorite campus tradition. Each class is represented during the event. Our class was always passionate about the event.

Favorite thing to do in Chicago: I enjoy going up to Chicago to watch a Cubs baseball game. I often drive to Chicago to visit my brother and sister. We enjoy eating at different restaurants and exploring the city.

Favorite Bible verse: “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.” Ecclesiastes 9:10
