What are some things that have made your Laurier experience amazing?

Wow where do I start. Coming to Laurier I was influenced by many of my older friends to get involved in the business community and in extracurricular activities. Two things that have  made my Laurier experience amazing are being on the Exec team for Sports Management Laurier (the best club on campus), and also being the Rush Chair for the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. I have been with SML for 3 years, and am currently the AVP of Marketing. The dedicated Exec team combined with the work hard play hard mentality has given me so many cherished memories, and introduced me to so many amazing people. Being part of AEPI has also contributed to my amazing experience at Laurier, and I honestly do not know what my University experience would have been like without the lifelong friends and experiences I have made through the fraternity.

What are your study tips and tricks?

Study tips I would give are definitely starting to prepare early, and having good notes so that you are not stressed and cramming the night before. It also doesn’t hurt to have a good relationship with your prof, even if that means going to their office hours with a question you already know the answer to, or just to say hi. Trust me when I say, it goes a long way.

What chore do you absolutely hate doing?

Usually I don’t hate any chore specifically, but as I am currently living on the top floor of an Ezra building, I would have to say taking out the trash is my least favourite chore. Living with 5 guys can get very messy, and walking down 4 flights of stairs having to carry massive garbage bags is something I do not look forward to. If the bag rips, you’re stuck half dragging this garbage bag full of gross smelling foods and liquids…nah not my thing.  

If you could hang out with any celebrity for the day who would it be and why?

If I could hang with any celebrity it would definitely be between Jonah Hill and Kanye West. I feel like Jonah Hill would keep me laughing the entire day. Kanye West is one of my favourite artists so spending a day him would be unreal. Even just driving down the street blasting “All of the Lights” together would be legendary.  


Would you rather have 500 tarantulas crawling in your house or 1000 crickets jumping around your room, and why?

I’m gonna go with neither, and just move houses as either of those would scar me for life. Or if I substituted puppies for tarantulas that could work too.

What is the coolest place you have traveled to?

The coolest place I have traveled to is between Greece and the Bahamas. The Bahamas was so fun and relaxing, and had the most gorgeous beach I have ever seen. I traveled around 3 islands in Greece over the span of 10 days with friends, and I have never had such a crazy and fun experience. From driving ATVs across the islands, cliff jumping into the ocean, and staying awake until the sun came up, this trip was packed with adventure and good times. Next semester I will be going on exchange to Hong Kong with one of my best friends, and we plan to travel all over Asia, so in a year from now my answer to this question will probably change.
