Mackenzie Zipfel, University of Maryland
“I love my college because it has a lot of school spirit! I love the University of Maryland because it fulfills everything I want and more! University of Maryland challenges me in multiple aspects, from academics to time-management. UMD’s campus is also so beautiful and there is always something fun to be a part of on-campus!
Abbie Edwards, West Virginia University
“At school you can find me on the cheerleading team. Other than cheerleading, I’m not a part of any clubs or sorority. I have a large group of friends that I love being around. I like to fish with my boyfriend or go shopping wth my other friends.”
Desiree Garcia, Trinity Valley Community College
“If I had 24 hours left to live, I would spend my last 24 hours with my family on a Sunday evening out in the backyard just cooking carne asada and listening to music.”
Lauren Tolat, University of Houston
“I major in Pharmacy. I want to make a difference in the healthcare community and impact the lives of patients who do not have immediate access to a healthcare provider like a doctor. Anyone can go to their local pharmacy and ask the pharmacist for health advice, and for some, this is all that they are able to have.”
Alyssa Marano, University of Louisville
“My favorite late night study snack is definitely popsicles!! I eat those like they are nothing! I go through like a whole box in a sitting!!! It’s so bad! Oh, and Goldfish. Holy moly, it’s deadly!”
