What are some of your hobbies and interests?

“I love to read spiritual books, play guitar, go hiking, and hammock during the summer!”

What is your favorite view in Duluth? 

“Easily the view from Enger Tower where you can see the entire city of Duluth while also seeing the hills covered in green during the spring and summer.”

What do you like about the community at Newman?

“What I like most about the Newman community is that there are so many people striving for a common goal. That goal is to follow Christ as best we can by saying yes to Him now. Those there are willing to push you to grow and pick you up when you fall. Our community, when meeting in Father Mike’s own home, allows you to feel like you are part of a true family on campus.”

Why should other students at UMD come to an event? 

“I believe that students should come to events to grow in community with those around them. We see that Christ designed us for this kind of relationship as He lived day and night with His own disciples. Mass brings us together to worship the way God wants us to, bible study helps us understand the voice of our shepherd, and the Rosary allows our Mother to bring us to Her Son. This will make the lives of students better by providing opportunities to learn about how our Lord is reaching out to us, both spiritually, and physically through others.”

What advice would you give Catholic high school seniors who are anxious about college next year? 

“The best advice I can give to Catholic seniors in high school is to pray and be present. Without prayer we have no relationship with God, and we need that relationship on a daily basis. When we aren’t present, we don’t prepare for what is next. Ask the Lord how to fully follow Him today and be confident that He will prepare you for tomorrow.”
