Favorite GW Memory: Do I have to choose one?! Ok, I’m going to cheat a little bit…my favorite memory isn’t one specific moment, but a period of time.  Being on the Colonial Cabinet (Cab Oncé!) was by far the most life-changing experience I have had at GW.  I not only was part of the 34 strong that welcomed the amazing Class of 2015, but I grew as a person and met 33 amazing people that no doubt will be my friends for the rest of my life.  It’s a summer that I sure will never forget!

How do you Define School Spirit: While I am a Sports Management major, I do not believe that spirit at GW just revolves around what happens on the field or on the court (that being said, GO COLONIALS!).  Rather, it’s the community that we form together and the experiences that we share as a student body.  Whether it is us celebrating the Inauguration of a President, having a spirited political debate, beautifying an elementary school in Southeast, cheering on one of the 23 varsity teams, or watching (or, in my case, performing) an a cappella concert at the Marvin Center, we as a community come out together as one body to cheer each other on and support one another in whatever endeavors we decide to take on here at GW.  Being able to enjoy and celebrate everyone’s achievements is, in my mind, what school spirit is all about.

This is why you should vote me as Mr. GW 2013: First, it’s an honor to even be nominated by my peers for this title, so thank you to all who took the time to nominate all of us.  Over the last four years, I have been able to meet some amazing people and do some pretty incredible things at GW, and I can’t believe how lucky I am to have had this experience.  I have poured my heart out to this university, and will continue to do so long after I graduate.  Whether it’s Raising High the Buff and Blue in my exorbitant amount of GW gear, being a guide to the incoming students about their next four years at GW, or being part of the best a cappella group on campus, I’ve pretty much done it all and have loved every minute of it.  In paraphrasing the fight song, “you bet I’m loyal to GW!” and I always will be.  Thank you for your vote, and Raise High!

Favorite GW Memory: My favorite GW memories are the countless hours I have spent at Froggy Bottom Pub. Throughout the past four years, I have eaten meals, shared stories, brainstormed ideas, and appreciated craziness at the tables of Froggy alongside nearly everyone who has been a part of my life at GW  - my roommates, best friends, sisters, mentors, mentees, coworkers, classmates and peers. 

How do you Define School Spirit:  School spirit is being excited to contribute to the GW community and proud to call GW your home.

This is why you should vote me as Miss GW 2013:  I have loved being involved in the livelihood of GW for the past four years, and I am so appreciative of the people and experiences that made me laugh and helped me grow.
