Favorite Part About Branford: Definitely the sense of community. I mean sure, sometimes living in Branford is like living in a fish bowl. But Branford’s a family, and families are a little nuts (pun intended; no nuts, no glory).

Favorite Yale Tradition: Branford Halloweens, because Lick-or-Treat! Or at least, that’s how I thought it was spelled when I was a freshman…

Why I Joined BCC: Because I enjoy organizing events and I’ve been head-over-heels in love with Branford from day one! Also because I’d hoped that I could make some of my best friends in BCC, which I did.
