What is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite place on campus would have to be in one of the huddle rooms in the Bergami Center. Its close to Starbucks and I get a private room to work in plus it helps me get out of my apartment for the day.

What is your favorite class at the University of New Haven?

Currently, my favorite class is my Professional Practices course with Bobby McDonald. it's a pre-internship course that helps me understand more about what is expected in the potential internship choice. Also, a lot of current issues are brought into the lessons along with ethics and other important issues and factors.

I chose University of New Haven because...

The University of New Haven has given me a chance to not only broaden my horizons within the Criminal Justice field, but they're allowing me to reach my full potential here. The professors and advisors come straight out of the fields we're interested in. They help build our foundations to start in a place where we want to go.
