Why did you choose to go to Bethany? Really liked the family feel on campus and the Lindsborg community. Knew I wanted to be someplace where I’d work closely with professors.
What has been your favorite memory from college? My sophomore year my roommates and a few friends decided we wanted a Christmas tree for the winter season. So we piled in a pick-up truck around midnight and drove into the ‘wild’ country around town until we found a real triumphant evergreen. Cut her down, threw her in the truck and mounted her up on our apartment’s balcony, complete with lights. Thought it really spread the Christmas cheer on campus until it was deemed a fire hazard and we had to dump it.
What drives you as a person? Probably my parents, they’ve instilled so much in me, from my faith to how I try to treat other people and they’ve really modeled how if you work hard you can succeed in life.
What is a special talent you possess? I can make a pretty killer mix CD.
What are your hobbies? Mario Kart ’64, ultimate Frisbee, rollerblading, reading, BBT
What is something very few people know about you? I was voted most likely to land my own sitcom in high school
