Why did you choose to go to Calvin: I chose to go to Calvin for a couple of reasons. The three main ones are: (1) they gave me the best financial aid package, (2) I had the ability to compete in both pole vault and diving, and (3) I was unclear about my major, but Calvin has all of the majors I was thinking about, so I knew if I switched majors, I wouldn’t have to transfer to a different school.

Favorite Sports Figure: I don’t really follow sports; I mostly just do them. I guess if I need an answer, it would be David Bodia.

Favorite food: Probably French fries
