The enthusiasm in the Class of 2021 Facebook page is off the charts, so we decided to bring back our “Tell Us About Yourself(ie)” series, which will highlight profiles of incoming students in the Class of 2021 from now until August Orientation.

If you are a member of Champlain’s Class of 2021 and are interested in sharing your selfie, check out how at the bottom of this post.

Why did you choose Champlain?

I’ve spent the majority of my life in a small town, so going to a small school is important to me. I’m also excited about the Upside-Down Curriculum because I cannot wait to dive into my major. The location is also pretty sweet!  

Do you have any quirky study habits?

I love, love, love using flashcards to study. I use them for everything and always have a package at hand.

What’s your favorite meme?

What’s a meme? Just kidding! Any Obama and Biden meme!

How do you eat granola?

I don’t, lol.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

White socks with black shoes, ugh.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

A bright yellow, because it’s such a fun, happy color.

What’s your go-to fun fact?

I have a twin sister, but we look nothing alike, and our personalities are very different too.

Describe your life goals in five words or less:

Help kids in need.

What’s a word or phrase you’re guilty of using too often?

I say “Gucci” wayyyy too much.

What’s the #1 item on your bucket list?

Swim with the pigs on the island of Big Major Cay!
