What activities are you involved in outside of academics?
I have been involved in Gospel Choir for almost a year now! I'm also on the road to become a big sister in Beta Theta Omega, a women leadership group on campus that emphasizes the development of leadership qualities in women through social work and get-togethers.

What do you and your friends do in your free time?
Most of the time we would hang out in the room, since we live together! Other than that, you can normally find us in the Miller kitchen experimenting with new cuisines. We also enjoy our afternoon nap dates during the weekdays.

If someone was interested in your major, what course(s) or professor(s) would you recommend?
I would definitely recommend taking Global Politics (POLS 132) with any professor because it really helps opening your eyes on a lot that has happened around the world in good detail. I am also an International Studies major and I took Introduction to Linguistics (LING 131) last year as a requirement for global perspectives. I would highly recommend that course and to take it with Professor Laurie Zaring. Discussions in class are eye-opening and interesting, and it not only teaches the syntax and science of linguistics but the course offers a wide range of getting to know cultures from around the world as small as a community in someplace we wouldn't have imagined. What I gained, especially, was knowing how to appreciate diversity even more.

Where’s the best place to study on campus?
I would definitely say my own room, because there is where I am most of the time when I study. I can get comfortable, snack whenever I want to and have all my materials with me. However, Preus Library is also a great option to study for those who can't study in their rooms.

What’s your go-to line in the caf when you don’t like what’s in the main line?
The pasta line! It never goes wrong and feeds you well.

What’s your favorite Luther tradition?
Homecoming night!

What do you miss about Luther when you go home?
I'm pretty sure I'll miss everything...

What’s your favorite part about going to college at Luther?
I actually like how Luther is in the middle of nowhere. It just allows us (the students) to channel all of our attention to this small community and everything in it. We need not worry about anything else going on outside of Luther that will most probably distract us from what we're trying to achieve here.

What's your wackiest Luther memory?
Having myself ignored for the entire day during my birthday and walking in unexpectedly to a party set up all for me.

What do you want to do after you graduate from Luther?
TRAVEL! And go to graduate school afterwards. Or maybe take a year off to connect to the needy.
