Favorite Moment/Memory at ONU: One of my favorite things from this past year was getting my littles in Kappa Psi! Not only did I welcome two hilarious, wonderful people into my life, but I gained the ability to mentor them and be there for them through their first year of college. I cannot wait to see what great things they both accomplish in their time here.

Fun Fact: My favorite time of year on campus is the first week of classes fall semester. The weather is beautiful, and everyone is so friendly to everyone. I also just love when the Tundra is full of people throwing a football or a Frisbee, sitting on blankets with their friends, or just taking a relaxing walk.
