Why did you choose SLU?
I chose SLU because I recognized how strong the community is during my campus tour, and I thought, “why not!”

What do you like most/enjoy most about SLU?
I enjoy the strong sense of community that exists in SLU and the wider Canton area.

CBL courses taken:
Peace Begins with Me With CBL

Why did you apply to be a CM:
I applied to be a CM because of the meaningful connections that I made during my CBL course, and I wanted to find a way to support those relationships as well as helping to foster new ones.

Why should every student take a CBL course during their time at SLU?
Every student should take a CBL course in order to pop the SLU bubble and strengthen the relationship between SLU and the wider Canton community! There’s so much to enjoy and fall in love with in the North Country, and CBL is a way to do that!

The most rewarding part of being a CM is having many opportunities to meet new people, make new connections, and strengthen SLU’s relationship with the Canton community. I love the people I’ve met thanks to the work that CBL office does; Dulli, for example, who I met during my first CBL, will hopefully be in my life for a long time!
