Majors: Honors Mathematics, Philosophy
Clubs / Extracurricular Activities: Asian American Association (AAA), Encore!, Notre Dame Chorale, RPG Club, Quiz Bowl Club
What's up! My name's Will, and I'm a rising sophomore majoring in Honors Mathematics and Philosophy. I'm from New Jersey, but right now my home is Alumni Hall (woof woof). I didn't know what to expect of being Notre Dame, especially because I would be on campus during a pandemic, but my experience here has been amazing. Despite the mask barrier, and other COVID protocols I have been able to find my place here over my freshman year. I hope that this obstacle is overcome by the time next semester arrives.
I'm constantly looking for new food to try, so I am on the lookout for local restaurants for me to explore. Also, I love to read, so if you ever want a book recommendation, you can count on me. And more often than not, you can catch me watching anime with my friends. It doesn't end there—with the freedom of being on a college campus, I discover new activities to do all the time. I look forward to all of the new experiences I'll have moving forward.
Favorite ND Moment
My favorite, and most memorable, experience here at ND was pulling the most spontaneous all-nighter with my friends in the first semester. We ate ice cream under the stars listening to music from 2012 for hours, then randomly decided to go on a run around St. Mary's lake.
