Advice for the Future Boilermaker

Actively search for your place on campus.  In order to make this large campus feel more personal, I encourage you to ask questions, try new activities and get out of your comfort zone. Be proactive and reach out to your professors, advisors and classmates.  You have all the great benefits of a large research institution, but you can get connected and feel at home within smaller offices, programs and organizations. This will be your second home for the next four years—become an active member of the Purdue community!


Fun Facts

I am an avid cyclist and love anything outdoors! I am always looking for new places to hike and mountain bike. I love spending time with my family in Michigan, as well as my church community in Lafayette.
