About the Counselor

What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy cooking a lot, trying new restaurants and spending time with family and friends.

What are your favorite things to do in Chicago?

My favorite things to do in Chicago would be going to Millennium Park, jogging along Lake Shore Drive and going to the many sport events such as White Sox, Bulls , Blackhawks and Bears games.

What makes SXU different from other universities?

At SXU, students are not known by numbers, professors know their names. The class size makes it easy for professors to get to know their students and not need the assistance of TAs. Thus, leading to professors writing letters of recommendations and offering research and/or internships opportunities for students.

What is your favorite season in Chicago? Why?

My favorite season is the summer, primarily because my birthday falls during that season. Also, I think it is the least crazy season here in Chicago which allows me to plan more outings.

What are your favorite places to eat near the SXU campus?

My two favorites places are Chi Tung and Palermo's Pizza.

Cubs or Sox?


Favorite television show?

Grey's Anatomy is definitely my favorite show!
