Where’s the best place to study on campus?
If you live in Brandt, the CFA. Otherwise I really like the upstairs of the Union.

What’s your go-to line in the caf when you don’t like what’s in the main line?

I usually go to the sandwich line. Funny story though, I have never actually gotten a sandwich there... I always go for the wraps!

What’s your favorite Luther tradition?

Gotta love the Whippy Dip, but I also really love Christmas Cheer because it is such a good cause!!

What do you miss about Luther when you go home?I usually miss my friends. You make such a connection with the people here on campus. I even sometimes miss the faculty and staff because they are just great people!

What’s your favorite part about going to college at Luther?
Ultimately the reason why I chose Luther was because of its amazing study abroad opportunities. Travel is a very important part of my life and I have tried to take advantage of the great things Luther has to offer. I am even studying in England for an entire year right now.

What's your wackiest Luther memory?
I feel like all of my Luther memories are kind of crazy, but the craziest is when I went up on the bluffs with some friends. It wasn’t crazy like “Oh my gosh we’re all gonna die, crazy” but more like “it is absolutely crazy how beautiful the world is and how awesome my life is at this exact moment in time!”

What do you want to do after you graduate from Luther?
Right now I am looking at either working in a hospital psych unit as a clinical psychologist or with the government as a behaviorist/profiler.
