1. What's your favorite thing about St. Edward's?

I love how the diversity and interaction of the student body is both in and out of the classroom. Our students are constantly broadening their horizons by studying, learning, teaching, volunteering, and working abroad. There are countless opportunities for our students to venture outside of their comfort zones and learn something new about themselves and others around the world. I am always impressed by the countless number of opportunities St. Edward’s provides for the student body and how often the students take advantage of these opportunities.

2. Describe your idea of a perfect day in Austin.

A perfect day in Austin would involve taking a run around the neighborhood and then enjoying a breakfast taco from Torchy’s. Afterward, I would take my puppy, Oscar, to Red Bud Isle to enjoy some swimming, meet other dogs, and get tired! I would then go to Half Price Books to rummage through all of the books and comic books. Lastly, I would head over to the Alamo Drafthouse for a movie and my absolute favorite shake, the chocolate chip cookie milkshake!

3. What's your favorite restaurant near campus?

Hands down my favorite restaurant near campus is Home Slice Pizza. I am a New York City native and it’s like having a little piece of home right in the heart of Austin.
