What is your favorite Wooster memory? Junior Leadership stands out the most for me. It felt back then that we were getting the keys handed over to our class to run the school and we had to come together as a unit to all become leaders. Really so many memories to reflect upon but this one puts it all together.
What impact did your Wooster education have on you? So many things stand out from my time at Wooster that have left an imprint on who I am today. Broadly thinking, Wooster as a community is what I cherish the most. The lessons that what you do does not just impact you but also the people around you. Self Help, Citizenship, Honor Code and even Saturday morning extra help are all linked together and taught me at a fairly young age what the Wooster Community is all about.
What advice would you like to share with current Wooster students? Wooster virtues will stay with you the rest of your life and when you come back on campus after years away, your heart should sing...and don't fall for the left handed pitcher squeezer.
