Q: Top 3 things you look forward to each year? A: There are so many things it is hard to choose. I look forward to the fall semester because it is always exciting to see the new freshmen come in; everyone comes back from the summer excited. I really enjoy getting to hang out with the Honors students because everybody is so much fun. Homecoming is also really fun. The luncheons are another really exciting opportunity offered to students because we invite so many interesting speakers. With really interesting speaker and guests, it is always a very unique experience with the honors college. Q: What is your role in the Honors Congress? A: I serve as the program assistant for student affairs. I support all the logistics behind planning all the luncheons, events honors congress puts on, I help pick up and help choose the delicious Monday morning breakfasts, and I send out all the mass emails. Q: Why would students come see you? A: They can come see me if they have any questions about any Honors Congress events, sign up for luncheons, grab tickets, buy Honors Congress t-shirts, or just to say hi. Q: What interests do you have? A: I love to read, I bring my kindle with me everyday everywhere. Ummm....I do freelance photography and I also serve as a foster home for rescued dogs. I am a social media maniac. I love tweeting, facebooking, and blogging. I do love food. The vice president, Robert Gottfried, and I talk about food regularly.

Q: Pepsi or coke? A: Neither, I don’t like soda. Can I put water? Q: What is something people wouldn’t know about you? A: I am actually kind of a nerd. I love video games. I love board games. Q: Controversial question: Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? A: NEITHER!!! Sorry. I did not drink either koolaid. Q: What event this semester excites you the most? A: This is hard, because there are so many new things you’re trying out this semester. Painting class, tour of the arena, and there is an interesting theme for homecoming, United Black and Gold Revolution. Q: What advice would you give incoming students? A: My advice would definitely be take advantage of every resource the honors congress offers. We have something for every interest so it is completely worth it to make time and get involved.
