Hendricks also said she has achieved dean’s list honors.

Hendricks said studying in London with 50 of her classmates, “some of whom will be lifelong friends,” has been one of the best parts of being a Tommie. Hendricks said she grew up near campus and has enjoyed seeing St. Thomas transform from a place of her childhood memories to what it is today.

“The new facilities on campus have brought true camaraderie to UST and have made an already remarkable place even better,” Hendricks said.

One interesting fact Hendricks noted is her love of Nike running shoes. She has enough pairs to wear a different one every day for an entire month.

Hendricks will work as a business analyst at Target Corp. after graduation.
