Why do you love UCI?

Originally, I didn’t know UCI existed until I applied to colleges, but I’m so glad I got to know this school. UCI has such a beautiful park with life all around you. I love how close campus is to multiple stores and food places, as well as the on campus food courts. The thing I love most about UCI is Peter the Anteater, our mascot. He is so lovable and the plushies in The Hill are so cute!

How can you be a successful Anteater?

Being a successful Anteater comes in many shapes and forms. One might say attending class is key to being successful. Another may encourage you to get involved on campus. Others may say having a positive attitude is all you need. All in all, being successful is your own definition and you can be successful in your own way by doing any of these things or more!

What is one fun fact about yourself?

A fun fact about myself is that I love to do fiber art. Fiber art is art that has anything to do materials such as yarn or fabric. In my case, I work with yarn to crochet cute little plushies. The biggest fun fact of it all is that I taught myself! I now make my own patterns and own plushies to give out as gifts to my friends!
