General, choral and instrumental music major/chemistry minor from Jourdanton High School

Chose UNT for: Honors Program and College of Music.

Challenging class: Aural Skills. I’d never done ear training before. I didn’t have music classes in high school — I just played in the band and ensembles.

Discovered about studying: I’m very undisciplined when I study alone, so I studied more with classmates.

Best thing about having a roommate: You have someone to help you adjust who’s going through everything just like you are. Safety in numbers.

Missed most about home: My friends and family, and having my own shower.

Favorite meal in the cafeteria: Ice cream floats — yes, they are a meal.

Favorite spot on campus: Bruce Hall.

Least favorite spot on campus: Parking spaces.

Favorite band: Benny Goodman’s Quartet.

Favorite book: Watchers by Dean Koontz.

Favorite way to take a break from studying: Running amok.

Look forward to most for sophomore year: Having one of my best friends attending UNT.
