Tour Guide at University of New Haven

Class of 2022

Hometown: Deer Park, NY

Major: Forensic Science

I chose University of New Haven because...

I am very interested in the Forensic Science program at the school. Many of the schools that were located to where I live didn't have a forensic science program, so I decided to look at out of state schools. The University of New Haven allows first year students to take classes relevant to their major freshman year for many of the majors at the schools, which is unlike most colleges. The atmosphere on campus is also very inclusive and I knew the first time I walked on campus I had found my home for the next 4 years.

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

I love Intro to Criminal Justice. My professor was previously a private investigator as well as a defense attorney, and he is always able to apply real life cases he worked on with what we are learning in class. Although the class is more work than most of the other classes I'm taking, I truly love learning about the government that is running this country, as well as discovering what I can do to fix the issues we have within the system.

What is your favorite place on campus?

I spend a lot of time in the Gerber/Bixler Quad. There's always something to do there, whether SCOPE has organized an event or my friends and I just decide to toss around a Frisbee.
