I keep choosing astronomy because it's like a puzzle you have to put together and we don't even have all the edge pieces. It's really exciting trying to put something together like that. You should study here for the people. I have professors and research advisors who actively support my goals, and I've made friends who uplift and help me when I'm reminded of just how hard this major can be sometimes. I think the community here is really great.

When I came to Ohio State, I wasn't actually studying astronomy, and then I went on a trip to Greenbank, West Virginia, with the Astronomical Society here. I really liked everybody. They just seemed to really like what they were doing and they were all very passionate about it and so it seemed like something that I would rather do.
