Why did you choose to come to Clemson? World's greatest luck and a friend's recommendation.

What's your favorite Clemson memory? Game day, tailgating, mingling with all fan from both teams and then the game itself. The game and campus are wild and are an experience that I will never forget. I will always be a tiger at heart.

What types of on-campus activities (student organizations, research, jobs) are/were you involved in? I took riflery and kenjitsu as leisure skills but being an international exchange student was a full-time activity of having the best time of your life.

What is your favorite place on/near campus? During the summer, the lake and dam are like something out of a movie. Swimming and rope swinging in the lake in the forest is incredible. That and Spill the Beans, the greatest ice cream and the best place to chill out with the amazing friends you have made.
