What is your best memory at McDaniel? What is your worst memory at McDaniel?
Some of my best memories come from freshman year and this could just be described as the lobby crew just hanging out in the Whiteford lobby. We would sit there for hours and just talk, hang out, listen to music, and just mess around on our downtime, which back then there was so much more. My least favorite memory was last semester working on my capstone. I had such a hard time staying positive and being happy with my light design for my show.
What advice can you give to those not graduating?
Seriously enjoy the time you have with your friends here while you can. it honestly goes by so quickly so make some awesome memories so that you can look forward to your reunions and see your friends again.
