    Student Life
    Do you prefer Oval Beach in the Fall or Spring (or maybe the Winter)? i definitely prefer it in the fall, especially once the leaves begin to change.
    Where is the best place to sit for lectures? In the middle, to get a direct view.

    Why did you choose to major in Fashion Retail Management? I've always had a thing for modeling and clothing, and i definitely wanted to pursue a career in something I know I will love every step of the way. Being able to use my creativity to dress someone and give them that burst of confidence once they see how good they look.
