Favorite Quote: "Live today, for tomorrow it will all be history"

Why I Chose Lafayette: I chose Lafayette because it gave me the ability to mix both a challenging engineering program and Division I softball into my college experience. Not many schools provide the opportunity to excel in school and athletics, and I believe Lafayette provided me with the opportunity to do both.
