What is your favorite thing about Purdue?

I love all things about Purdue, except the exams!

What was your favorite class?

HK 258, Foundations of Motor Development, with Dr. Zelaznik. This class related movement to everyday activites, such as throwing a baseball or catching a fly ball, that were very relatable and kept the class very interesting and entertaining.

What is your career goal?

First to become a physical therapist and hopefully one day have my own practice, then maybe later in life, return to school to get my PhD and become a professor at Purdue.

What would you tell prospective students about Purdue?

I would tell them that Purdue is a place you can call home. It is a place that will open you up to a whole world of new possiblities and exciting opportunities!

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

One of the most interesting things I've learned so far is that Purdue's Elliott Hall of Music is larger than Radio City Music Hall in New York City!

What is your favorite spot on campus?

All spots on campus are my favorite! But if I had to pick a few they would be Memorial Mall in the spring, the new Co-Rec, Purdue Memorial Union and Slayter Hill on football Saturdays!
