What is your favorite thing about Visi?

I would have to say the community and the atmosphere. You can be walking on campus - which is beautiful - and everyone is saying hello in the hallways. The teachers are always there to help you, too. 

Which class has been your favorite so far?

This year, it's Chemistry. My classmates and the teacher are always wanting to help. There’s always room to improve and work on it. It’s rewarding when you do. 

How do Visitation's teachers make learning exciting?
They tie what we're learning to present day, or something students can relate to. They make fun projects and activities for you to do in class, rather than just sitting and taking notes from a Powerpoint. Last year, we got to teach the class about the Black Plague in history. It was a great way to learn it. You got to go out and explore it yourself.
What makes our traditions special?
I think they’re so unique to Visitation. Anywhere else, you wouldn’t find Marshmallow Roast. Other schools have spirit weeks, but nothing like Gold-White. It’s a friendly competition that everyone can get involved in and have fun.
What do you love about Gold-White?

I loved getting to be in it last year. I love the trolley ride, and getting to jump through the window. I loved going to Headquarters, going canning, talking to students from other grades, and getting to know people I hadn't met before. 

My sister, when I was in fifth grade, had Gold Team Headquarters at our house. It was my first experience, and seeing it behind the scenes was cool. I was really impressed.

Knowing about Gold-White before coming to Visitation, I always wanted to be a part of it. I wanted to be involved in some way. I'm not the best cheerleader, but I'm enthusiastic. I heard about this position, and I wanted everyone to love Gold-White as much as I do. I wanted to be a reason why people were excited for Gold-White.

Which is your favorite Salesian Little Virtue?

Kindness, especially because I've been introduced to it more at Visitation - just from people saying hello and smiling in the hallways. If you have a rough day, everyone will try to help. It's the little things.
