What activities/organizations are you involved in?
I play football and run track here at the University. I'm also part of the SMOD (Student Manager On Duty) program in the Davies Center. It's been great to meet so many wonderful people through my experiences.
What's your favorite place off campus?
I am in love with Carson Park. Not only do we play football games there, but it is also a very peaceful place to reflect!
Who is your favorite professor?
Dr. Carey Applegate is outstanding! She is my advisor and I can go to her for help in any of my English classes. She has a fun, bubbly personality, and I love that she teaches outside the box. Let's just say that if I had an 8:00 a.m. class with her, I'd be 5 minutes early!
Where's the best place place to eat off campus?
Stella Blues is a Cajun-influenced place downtown. It's the perfect size with a touch of fanciness...great place for a date!
What's the best thing about being a student at UWEC?
The impact that you make as a Blugold! The commitment we make to Excellence both in and out of the classroom is unlike any other college in the nation, and it's something I'm incredibly proud to be a part of.
Where's your favorite local hotspot?
My favorite local hotspot is definitely Racy's, right on Water Street. It's a great local place that has great coffee and a very chill atmosphere if you need a break from the library!
What's your favorite thing to do when you get free time?
Free time can mean I get a full 8 hours of sleep or an extra meal. Or it can mean some time to dust off my old PS2 and play some Madden '04. Mostly though it is a time to rest and get ready for the next adventure.
Why did you choose UWEC?
It had everything I was looking for with my major and gave me the best opportunity to play two sports! Also, I've discovered how genuine the people are! You can't help but become an awesome person just by being around Blugolds all the time.
