How did you learn about ASU?
I attended Cisco College in Abilene and they had a “University Day” for universities to set up booths and recruit new students for their universities. That is when I met Amanda Ritchie and she helped me fall in love with ASU as soon as I attended the following Transfer Day that spring.
Why did you want to attend ASU?
As soon as I came for the Transfer Day, I felt so welcomed on campus. I was guided by so many individuals that work for ASU and I felt important and I could tell they would go above and beyond for their students here. They made it feel like my new home was at ASU in the matter of a few hours.
What is your favorite thing about ASU?
My favorite thing about ASU is the support campus organizations get from faculty and the student body. We really care for one another here and show up to support each other no matter what.
What are some of your hobbies?
My favorite hobby is just hanging out and listening to music with friends. It very relaxing and it’s always good to bond with friends.
Are you involved in any student organizations?
I am involved in Ram Round Up as a Ram Transition Leader. I am also a RAMbassador, the President of Phi Alpha Honor Society, teammate in Rambelle Rugby, a member of Delta Zeta, and last but not least, member of Student Social Work Association.
Do you work on campus? If so, where and what are your responsibilities?
I no longer work on campus. However, I did work in the “back of house” for Admissions for one year. I helped mail things to students, input potential student’s information into the computer, answer phones, and scan in transcripts. If your transcript was lost, it was probably me. (Kidding!)
What is one piece of advice you would give to help college students succeed?
If there is any advice I could give it would be one of two things: to just remember why you are here and remember the big goal is graduation, and get involved! Try new things, make new friends, and just stay active in campus life!
