A sophomore majoring in History. Jay is a Liberal Arts Student Council Senator, the President Pro Tempore of the Undergraduate Student Government, and the Workshop Coordinator with the Leadership Consultants. Their advice to incoming JagVenture students is “Don’t forget about your academics! Friends and extracurriculars are valuable, but you’re here for a reason. Make sure your major is something you chose for yourself. Just because your parents want a businessperson or a doctor does not mean that you have follow that. Study something you love. You’re here for four years, make it count”. Jay places a large emphasize on academics, and rightfully so, so it was no surprise that when we asked them “If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be?” they said, “If I could be any character in fiction, I would be Hermione Granger. She’s smart, determined, and despite being incredibly intelligent, she was placed in Gryffindor because her overwhelming bravery outweighed her intelligence”.
