Do you have an on-campus or off-campus job?
I work at the campus library!

Do you have a favorite professor or person who has influenced you on campus? Why?
I’m still new to VCSU but I genuinely enjoy Dr. Kelly’s class, she creates a safe space and is open for discussion, so I really enjoy that.

Have you had any cool experiences since you’ve been in college that you’d like to tell us about?
Just being involved in general, I loved helping at the Bill Osmon Fun Run during homecoming week!

What does VCSU mean to you?
Still learning that, but it’s a lovely community!

What is your story? How did you end up at VCSU?
I was originally a student at NDSCS in Wahpeton, once I graduated there, I made the decision to transfer to VCSU once I learned how involved and well-known their education program was. I also already knew a good amount of people on campus so that helped my choice a lot.

What are your dreams and ambitions or career goals upon graduation?
I would love to end up teaching in Wyoming so I could live close to my sisters, I just want to teach at a public school and be as involved in the local community as possible.
