What is your favorite thing about St. Edwards?

There is a place for everyone here and students are encouraged to express themselves fully. I love seeing unique and original fashion on campus as well as the projects and causes students are giving their time to.

Describe your perfect day in Austin.

My perfect Austin day would start with an early morning walk around Lady Bird Lake and a swim at Barton Springs. Then I'd drop by the downtown farmer's market, grab some homemade raspberry gelato and some wild flowers and walk to a yoga class from there - restorative is my favorite! I'd end the day with a comedy show and a pizza at Via 313 with friends.

What advice would you give to students applying to college?

The process can be overwhelming when you're first starting out, so remember to breathe. Be proud of yourself for the work it takes and all the work you've put into your education thus far. Take it one step at a time and know you have a wide support system to guide you and cheer you on.
