I loved my time at McDaniel.

Who do you think is/was your best mentor(s)?

Dr. Upton.

What were some of the challenges you encountered and how did you overcome them?

I think one of the biggest challenges I’ve had in college is being motivated to do those big assignments. I usually make myself do them by promising myself rewards after I’m done, like watching Netflix or eating a snack.

What are your plans for after graduation? 

I am in the process of being interviewed for full-time positions. I am also looking into grad school after taking a year off.

What is your best memory at McDaniel? What is your worst memory at McDaniel?

My best memory is probably one night freshman year, when Darby and I were just starting to get to know each other and we watched movies all night then ate pizza in the DMC parking lot. My worst memory was when I face-planted in front of Gardens and got road rash on my knees, hands, and stomach.

What advice can you give to those not graduating?

Cherish every little thing you do on this campus cause eventually it’s going to be the last time and then you’ll be sad.

Anything else you want to share with the world?

I am graduating a year early.

Editor’s note: Bailey Booth will be graduating a year early. She started at McDaniel as part of the class of 2018 but through her efforts she has been able to achieve graduation in three years.
