My home for the next 4 years

Union College

I will be attending Union College in Schenectady, NY this fall as a member of the class of 2011. I have too many interests to choose an intended major at this time, but I am especially interested in Biology, Eastern Relgions, and Spanish (weird combination...I know).

I also love to run! While at Union, I hope to run for the cross-country and indoor/outdoor track teams.

(Past Event) 1/15-17/2013 ON CAMPUS: What do you value and believe?

A Writing Center Min-Course. Come write a “This I Believe” essay, in the manner of those read on National Public Radio and published on thisibe-lieve.org. This course does not demand that you delve into your deepest convictions; “This I Believe” essays can be uplifting, moving, insightful, and/or amusing. Topics of “featured” essays in-clude not only the power of love, the value of mending (as opposed to fixing), and the lessons taught by failure, but also the authors’ be-liefs in barbecue, cows, and semi-permanent hair dye.
