Why did you choose Loomis?
I chose Loomis because of the community. Even though we are a 700-student school, everyone is extremely friendly and would love to get to know you better. By the end of the year, nearly everyone knows each other's names around the school.

Favorite subjects:
Math (CL Linear Algebra)
CL Economics

Activities on campus:
Football, Debate Society Student Leader, Class Officer, Log Staff Writer, Head Tour Guide

A fun fact about me:
I had never heard of Beyoncé until 2020.

What is your favorite question you get asked on tour?

“What made you decide you want to come to Loomis?”

What really attracted me to Loomis is the people. Not only does Loomis have an extremely dedicated and friendly group of teachers and faculties, but Loomis also has the best student body out there. Everyone is extremely friendly and easygoing. People will always offer to give you a hand when you need it or cheer you up when you are down. It is basically a huge family.

What do you want to make sure prospective students and families know about Loomis?
I want to make sure to share my experience fitting in at Loomis, especially the amount of help and assistance I received from fellow students and teachers to make me comfortable with a brand-new boarding lifestyle. I want to make sure students and families know about the great community we have at Loomis and that the greatest resource we have is the people.
