Why I Chose Lourdes: I originally chose Lourdes University because the institution was starting the inaugural Men’s Gray Wolves Basketball team. In doing this, I actually fell in love with the campus and its overall environment. Graduating from a small high school, it made the college transition much easier. The smaller-sized classrooms and individualized attention had a lot to do with my academic success. I found that the instructors, no matter the class, cared about me as a student and really wanted me to succeed. I have made everlasting friendships with my coaches, teammates, instructors, staff members and classmates while attending Lourdes. This is something I would not trade for the world.
Hobbies/Interests: I still love playing basketball in different leagues on the weekends. I also enjoy being active and participating in other sports like flag football and softball. Most of all, I love being around my family whenever I can.
