they supported me. Did you have any ideo that you were octually going to win? Of course. I figured if I went into it with a good attitude and aggressively getting tabs, I'd have a good shot. It's good tfxit you hod such confidence, it obviously poid off Now tfxat youVe a senior, ore you doiiDting your ability to break away from LRI? No, not really. I mean, I love URI, but I think I will be reody to be an alumnus once graduation comes along. I hope to still stay octive as an alum, though. I think I put too much into my college years here to just forget about them once I'm no longer a student. So you pbn on visiting campus often? Sure, my parents live nearby so it'd be easy erxxjgh to do. Well that's good. [^ you feel like you've fxid many valuable experierxKS throughout your four years? Absolutely! I octually transferred here so I haven't had a full four from Greek life, to tour years, and I made sure to take advantage of everything I could guiding, to being a URI 101 mentor, to fhe classes I toke... everything really, Soixds like you were Inaedibly active... tfie ideal LRi student!

Being nominated was really an honor, and pretty coot I might add. Did you think you would get the crown? No! I was just having fun with my friends collecting tabs for ttie kids at the RM house. That's good. So, ore you scared of being a senior, now that you'll have to enter the "big bod world" soon? Actually, yeah. I want to stay at URI for as long as I can. I'm 1 want so not ready to leave my frierxis. my school, and my life here. The real world can wait this to go on as long as possible! Do you think you've changed a lot since you first stepped on the URI campus as a mere freshman? 1 think I've definitely grown up. and all the people I've met and the opportunities I've had have helped in that respect. In the post 4 years, not only did I find quite possibly the best group of friends and became involved with some of the most respected Who nominated

I figured out that making an entire movie would take too much of my time so I opted to do a scene, and all I knew was that I wanted to do an action scene. Because I was only doing one scene I wanted to make sure I paid careful attention to detail. I basically did everything from storyboards to scripts for this movie I had to go to great lengths to get permission to film this scene on campus because we used Air Soft guns. But I think it was worth it all because now I have something to sfiow for one of my hobbies and all of my hard work.


The

biggest way URI has changed me is that I hove change in my pockets! I really think tfiat college is a pivotal time for students because it's a place to find yourself. It's a good time to explore your career options without consequences, such as changing majors like I did, and URI was helpful and supportive with that. Being at URI has helped me to realize that I shouldn't do something that will [ust insure me a job in the future, but to do something that I love. I don't care what I do ^^ in the future, as long as I'm doing what I want! less
