What’s a favorite memory from your first year at Princeton?
Having a birthday dinner with a close group of friends in the middle of midterms week.

What’s a Princeton class that has shaped the way you think and why? 
Education Policy, SPI387: American schools reflect a lot about our society, and learning about inequality within schools let me better understand inequality within society. Being in this class let me look back through my K-12 years and reflect on how I got to where I am today, and also how to make American schools better.

Hey everyone! I'm Ben, and I'm from NYC. I'm so excited to meet everyone on campus this fall! I'm a big sports fan - I love both basketball and baseball, and I play club baseball here. I also care about teaching, I tutor a lot in my free time and also have done volunteer work in NYC schools in past summers. My favorite part about this role is being able to make connections with you all, and being a sounding board for any problems you come across in your first year. I'm happy I get to be a part of this journey with you!
