I am originally from Plano, Texas and am currently involved in several student activities: Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Swim Club, Water Polo Club, Ricci Scholars, and Rotary Youth Exchange. I studied abroad in Taipei, Taiwan in 2010-2011 and will be studying in Rome, Italy in fall 2013 and Beijing, China in spring 2014. After enjoying a Jesuit high school education, I focused my college search on Jesuit universities. I also wanted to attend school in an urban setting and since I had family in the Chicago area, Loyola was a natural fit. I didn't know much about Quinlan before I entered, but I have been thoroughly impressed since then and am confident this is the school for me!
