  • Jade HillHometown: Geneva, Minnesota

  • Favorite meal in the Caf: Steve's pasta days, I like spaghetti noodles with alfredo sauce, chicken and broccoli!  Also, Steve's taco salads are awesome!
  • Favorite place on campus and why: My favorite place on campus is Einstein's because it is a great place to meet up with friends or to do homework.  Plus, the bagels and coffee are always great too!
  • Favorite place or thing to do in La Crosse: My favorite thing to do in La Crosse is to go hiking. There are many trails around the area and the views are amazing.
  • Why I chose VU: I chose Viterbo because of its Nursing program, and my love for the small size where it only takes two minutes to walk across campus. I also really love the city of La Crosse.  It is the perfect distance from my hometown and a good size compared to my hometown of 500 people. Most importantly, I loved how welcoming everyone was when I visited!
  • Advice for prospective students conducting their college-search: Go with what your heart tells you.  Don't let your parents or friends influence your decision because it is YOU who has to like it.  I loved being the only one from my senior class that attended Viterbo because it was a fresh start to meet so many great friends.  Another thing I strongly suggest is not to room with your best friend from high school.  Meet new people and branch out.  That is what college is for!
  • Career aspirations: I want to go to medical school to either become a psychiatrist or go into emergency medicine.
