Favorite thing about Lexington? Everyone abides by the speaking tradition, not just those associated with W&L. When I walk through town, every person I pass is so friendly and welcoming.
What’s your favorite W&L memory? This past summer, I visited some of my friends who were in Lexington for the summer, and we went to Panther Falls. We ended up camping there and sleeping on a boulder with an INCREDIBLE view of the stars.
What’s the best encounter you’ve had with a faculty or staff member? This isn’t a specific encounter, but my academic advisor (Irina Mazilu in the physics department) is definitely one of the coolest people on this campus and whenever I get to see her it’s a good day. She really takes the time to get to know all of her students. I frequently go into her office just to chat about life, and she’s never too busy to take the time to talk to me about travel, science, or the latest news story. She’s always so helpful with schoolwork, and I can tell that she really cares.
