What is your favorite course you have taken in high school or college? Modern Ireland, it was the first time in my academic career that I found a genuine passion and curiosity for a subject. I continue to study and do research on the topic in an effort to develop a deeper appreciation and understanding for the complexities of Irish history and the patterns and similarities shared within our own historical journey.

What is your favorite place on campus and why? The Sugar Bush. There is a spot at the highest point on the maple sap lines with a great view of the valley. It has the oldest trees in our orchard. Depending on how you look at it, it represents the beginning or the end.

I am most happy when... I am most happy when... I am outside. Whether it's on the trails, the lake, or the mountain there is just something special about taking in the sights and sounds of nature.

If I had a free afternoon I would...  In the Spring, Summer, or Fall I would get into the greenhouse or the garden. There is something very therapeutic about playing in the dirt. In the Winter, I seek out the non-groomed ski trails as it is a thrill to be the first to break trail on newly fallen snow.

What is your favorite outdoor activity? Pond Hockey. I believe playing shinny is the purest form of the game, and there is a great community feel about our hockey pond on campus.
