What one thing do you wish you knew on your first interview?

That going off on a tangent with Dean Chiddick was ok…I assumed I had bombed the interview. I was wrong and that made it even easier to be part of the Rosemont Community. 

What does the Rosemont Mission mean to you?

It is a shared commitment and covenant that helps to bring this community together.


Would you rather go backward in a time machine or have the chance to see the future?

Forward…always better to see what may happen than what already has happened.


What is your favorite sandwich?

Pastrami on a wedge.


What would you like a prospective student to know most about Rosemont?
