Major: Business Management
College Activities: Outreach, Homecoming Committee, Orientation, Volunteer with ARC Buddies, DS Student Manager
Hobbies/ Interests: I enjoy hanging out and just chatting with friends and family! I am able to spend hours in DS just talking and catching up. I also love to rollerblade and bike, especially through Gooseberry Park. Reading a good book or watching a good movie is a favorite pastime of mine, especially if they have a bit of romance in them. In the summer I work at a bible camp, so I love the time spent there relaxing in the sun and enjoying the lake.
Favorite thing about Concordia: My favorite thing about Concordia is the welcoming feeling I get when I'm there. Concordia truly is a community of people who like being there and enjoy being with each other. We also have quite a bit of school spirit, which is great to see throughout campus. Those two things definitely allow for Concordia to be such a wonderful place!
Advice to new students: Try your best to enjoy every bit of Concordia! Get involved in different organizations and committees, meet new people, and don't wish the time away. Before you know it, college will be gone. When you look back on these years, makes sure they are memories you want to and will remember. These are some of the greatest years of your life, so make the most of them!
