Why did you choose Loomis?
I chose Loomis because not only did it provide a rigorous education but also from the moment I stepped onto campus it was such a welcoming environment and that was when I realized Loomis was the school for me.

Favorite subjects:
Math and English

Activities on campus:
Soccer, Squash, Tennis, co-founder and president of the Caribbean Club, ISA leader, Head Tour Guide

A fun fact about me:
My favorite ice cream flavor is cookie dough.

What is your favorite question you get asked on tour?

“How did you adjust to living away from home?”

Don't get me wrong it is difficult to adjust in the beginning, but Loomis has such a welcoming community that it is almost like you forget you are away from your home. Everyone on campus wants to watch you succeed, there are many people here that can provide a support system for you like prefects, RA's, coaches, teachers, advisors, and dorm faculty. Loomis keeps you busy with weekend activities, extracurriculars, and homework. Loomis is my second home and it will be yours too.

What do you want to make sure prospective students and families know about Loomis?
When I am meeting prospective students and their families I always make sure to share why I choose Loomis and why I am happy here. I mention how I was a new sophomore and how smooth the transition for me was because of how welcoming everybody was. I make sure that they know Loomis has the perfect balance of everything, a meticulous education, good athletics, various after school programs to chose from, and most importantly kind people.
