Tell us about what you're doing with your life.
I live in Denver, Colorado, with my boyfriend, and work in local government as a demographic analyst.

What is your favorite memory of your time at Cornell?

I had the luxury of taking one class during a three-week summer session after freshman year.  The weather was gorgeous and the small class size was refreshing after all the large lecture classes of the previous semesters.  It was like a vacation and it’s when my fondness for Ithaca developed.

·  What was your favorite class at Cornell, or the one you found the most useful?
The question should be which class was least useful.  All my classes were interesting and useful, from my very first urban and regional studies class, The American City, to Introduction to Modern Dance, where I realized my love for dance.

How has your time at Cornell influenced you since you graduated?

Cornell made me a better person.  I may not have had the best time while I was there, but I always knew I would appreciate it in the long run.  Cornell opened my mind, surrounded me with amazing people, and made me humble.
