Where are you from?
How long have you been in Springfield?
3 years, a senior now (*cries*)
Why did you join Springfield?
I went to the first Springfield meeting of my freshman year to humor my roommate (love you Fishy), but didn't expect to stick around at all. Funny enough I stuck around, as the fit of Springfield for me became so apparent during that first meeting. I left feeling so welcomed and at home by the energy and approachability of the members who I originally met there--I knew then that Springfield was something special and something I wanted to throw myself into.
What’s your favorite Springfield event?
For me, it's between my first canning trip that I went on where we renamed everyone to go by "Katie" (yeah that was weird) or getting to dance for Springfield this year and all the support and laughs that I had throughout the weekend.
Why is Springfield special to you?
This organization has shown me so much love and support, and given me a larger purpose throughout my time here at Penn State. There's something to be said about a large, loud group of college students who rally around fighting against pediatric cancer (and their love of alpacas), and I think that the passion, authenticity and wackiness of each and every Springfielder is what makes it so special to me.
