Favorite Hopkins Memory Taking a break from executing my final SOHOP to watch one of my co-workers accept the award for Student Employee of the Year and then awarding our supervisor with the Outstanding Supervisor of the Year award. It was an amazing recognition of all our hard work and I was able to head back to our event with a renewed sense of excitement.

What do you miss most about being a Hopkins student? I miss being able to see any of my friends at any time. As an undergrad, I was able to walk down the hall or street or have dinner with my friends. Now my friends are scattered across the county and I can only see them on occasion.

Knowing what you know now, what would you want to tell your pre-college self? College is the time to explore your passions. Just because you choose a major, doesn’t mean you can’t take classes or participate in extracurriculars that are something completely different. I chose a career path based on my extracurriculars, not my major.
