Favorite memory of SPU: “Being part of The Falcon [student newspaper] was and continues to be one of my favorite parts of being a student at SPU. It allows its participants to experience the University in a unique way. The Falcon has taught me how to work hard even when I am exhausted, to be accountable and to keep pushing myself and others to pursue truth. I feel that I have benefited immensely from being part of The Falcon family, and when I look back on my college years, it will stand out as a place where I found my voice and the confidence to let it be heard.”
