Favorite spot on campus: The lounges in Clare Hall are my favorite spot on campus. While attending Silver Lake College, this is where my teammates and I would play Xbox, Playstation 3 or Wii games for hours on our free weekends or after homework and classes.
Favorite season: It’s a toss-up between summer and fall, I love the heat that summer brings, but I love the fall when the NFL, NBA, and college football and basketball seasons begin because I am a huge sports fan.
Favorite event: My favorite event is Athletes’ Day which usually comes around twice during the spring term. This is when the current basketball players get a chance to see what new talent is interested in coming to Silver Lake College of the Holy Family the following year. I personally enjoy this day when the players I coached during the summer get to come up and play along with the current Lakers. It is always a great day full of good competition and fun.
