My experience at St. Lawrence has been characterized by a balance of academic, athletic, and social activities. During my first two years here I joined the Golf team, became a First Year Council Representative, a SLU Buddy, and a peer advisor in Career Services. Participating in this broad spectrum of activities gave me a great way to meet a variety of people on campus and helped me feel exceptionally comfortable in Canton.
During the spring of my junior year I left Canton and traveled to Trinidad for a study abroad program. While there I enrolled in classes at the University of the West Indies and also took classes through the partnership program with Pacific Lutheran University. I had an amazing experience in the Caribbean, and learned to be far more patient than I ever have been during my life.
In my final year at St. Lawrence I have spent a majority of my time completing two Senior Year Experiences (SYEs). For the economics department I studied the impact of remittances on the income distribution in Nepal. I have worked closely with Dr. Chezum and Dr. Bansak during both semesters to complete this project, and have learned a significant amount about the process of research. Additionally, I have been working to complete an SYE in Mathematics on an alternative approach to approximating probability distributions. Both of these projects have been very interesting and have allowed me a large amount of flexibility in selecting my topic and choosing how I have gone about completing both of them.
