What activities are you in besides academics?
Outside of academics I am in two music ensembles. I play the flute in Varsity Band and sing in Aurora. I also have a work study in the caf.

What do you do with your friends in the free time?
My friends and I like to watch movies in our free time and just hangout and talk to each other.

If someone was interested in your major, what course(s) or professor(s) would you recommend?
I am a Music major with a minor in music education. For anyone who plays flute and wants to take private lessons in college, even if you are not a music major,  I would recommend taking them from Professor Hester. She is an amazing teacher and incorporates body mapping ideas into learn how your body works and how it can help you play better.

Where’s the best place to study on campus?
The best place to study on campus is in the Center For the Arts (CFA) building . There are lots of comfortable places to study, a lot of natural light and when you want a break you can grab a delicious cinnamon roll from Sunnyside. There are also some beautiful art galleries that you can walk trough when you need a quick break from studying.

What’s your go-to line in the caf when you don’t like what’s in the main line?
When I don't like the food in the main line, my go-to line is the grill line. I am just about always in the mood for a burger and fries or a grilled cheese sandwich.

What’s your favorite Luther tradition?
My favorite Luther tradition is that first year students are called first-years instead of freshman. It's almost like being at Hogwarts.

What do you miss about Luther when you go home?
When I go home I miss the feeling of belonging and sense of community that I feel at Luther.

What’s your favorite part about going to college at Luther?
My favorite part about going to college at Luther are the people who I have met and that I have gotten so close to so many people in such a short amount of time. I also like that I can see the starts at night and the beauty all around campus.

What's your wackiest Luther memory?
My wackiest memory from Luther is learning how to say "oofta". Before coming to Luther I had never heard the word oofta, my roommate and RA explained what it meant as we were walking to an orientation event. Later that day, after walking up a hill from Legends Fitness Center to my room I sat down on my chair and then said, "oofta". I asked my roommate is I used it right and then we both got really excited because I used it right.

What do you want to do after you graduate from Luther?
After I graduate from Luther I want to be a Music teacher. It doesn't matter where I teach, or who I am teaching, I just want to be able to share the gift music with people and teach them valuable life lessons.
