“The small town, the quiet atmosphere, the short walks to class, and the easily obtained seclusion make it natural to immerse yourself in study.‚ĶAnd the students¬†and professors make it meaningful through their curious, genuine inquiry and conversation.”

As an undergraduate, he wrote for The Collegian and served as Opinions Editor. He has also written freelance articles for numerous publications.
