Alma Mater & Major:

Best College Memory:
I have many fond memories of my time at UHSP. Being an orientation leader, traveling to Boston with Student Government Association, volunteering at the science center to teach young kids about the importance of medication safety and fun science activities were some of my favorite times. I think my all-time favorite memory is celebrating the Cardinals win the 2011 World Series. We had all just gotten done taking an exam and we were able to go downtown to watch Game 7 and celebrate with our classmates and the city. School may get tough, but you will always have ways to create balance with your peers and all the fun things to do in St. Louis.
Favorite Thing To Do in St. Louis:
My favorite thing to do in St. Louis is enjoy all the free events and attractions, like Forest Park, the zoo and the science center. I also love to go around and see all the holiday decorations and light shows during the winter.

My Advice to Prospective Students
"Ask questions – when comparing your options, make sure you ask the same things at each college visit so you can compare and create a pros and cons list. Finally, really think about your end goal (after college plans). You don’t have to know exactly what it is you want to do because things can change, but know where your passions and dreams lie. What are your strengths? How can you use those strengths to create a career you love?"
