History with Hastings College
I graduated from Hastings College in 2012 with a degree in studio art and a minor in visual media.
Why I chose to attend Hastings
I wanted a small liberal arts college where I could be involved both in the classroom and with extracurricular activities.
Hobbies and interests
I’m drawn to anything creative, from painting to sewing to making jewelry. I’m also very active and love being outdoors.
Favorite thing about Hastings College
I love how beautiful the campus is. There are flowers and green trees in the spring, vibrant leaves in the fall and white snow in the winter with Christmas lights on the buildings.
Favorite place on campus
My favorite places on campus are the glassblowing studio and the water fountain between Altman Hall and the Morrison-Reeves Science Center.
Most memorable class
Marine Conservation Biology was my favorite Hastings course. It was a January Term (J-Term) trip to Honduras. We did some scuba diving and hiked through the rainforest.
Favorite thing to do in Hasting
Going for walks around Heartwell Park is the best!
Favorite place to eat in Hastings
Back Alley Bakery has amazing food and delicious desserts! Pizza night on Thursdays is always a highlight.
Best thing about being a Bronco
We’re part of a community that truly cares for each other and has a lot of pride in our school. Hastings has become home for me because of my experiences at this college.
I’m surprisingly good at rapping, a talent I discovered when I participated in the annual Mr. and Mrs. Bronco pageant on campus.
Best meal I can cook
In college, my roommates and I invented Fancy Ramen and Eggs, but I think my best yet is my homemade alfredo sauce.
People would be surprised to know that...
I was supposed to be named after my great grandmother, Florence, but my parents thought the name was too dated for me. (Of course, this was before Florence and the Machine became big.) Instead, I wear her wedding ring.
