What is your favorite thing about Purdue?

How the university offers so much in the way of helping students reach their goals and to succeed. I think Purdue offers a great motivational environment that pushes students to be the best they can be.

What was your favorite class?

So far Soc220, "Social Problems."

What is your career goal?

I hope to pursue a career in Public Relations, working as a representative for a company as their spokesperson.

What would you tell prospective students about Purdue?

You would think there's not much to do in a small town in Indiana, but Purdue offers so much for it's students with events and organizations, you can always stay busy.

What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned or seen as a tour guide at Purdue?

I love that as a tour guide we get to be like walking Purdue encyclopedias! I've learned a lot about the school's history I probably wouldn't have otherwise known.

What is your favorite spot on campus?

The Founder's Park fountain in late spring/early fall. It's still warm out then so it's the best place too study, and even if it's just a little too hot you can get misted by the fountain if you sit in the right spot.
