More About Charlie

What is your favorite place to hang out on campus? Off campus?

“On campus: There is a bench behind Grafton Hall that overlooks D&M, the rotary, and has a great view of the mountains. Off campus: College Town Pizza…SO delicious.”

What do you like best about your major/academic program?

“The CJ and Soc. Departments have shown a lot of interest in their students and really want success for them. I haven’t had a professor yet that I didn’t feel extremely comfortable around!”
