Lexi Vertein

  • Hometown: Reedsburg, Wisconsin
  • Major: Elementary Education
  • Minor: Child Development
  • Campus involvement: Member of the Education Club, Peer Mentor for Student Support Services, and Voyager.
  • Favorite place on campus and why: My favorite place on campus are the swings in the Assisi Courtyard! I love sitting on them to just hang out with friends or to do homework.
  • Favorite place or thing to do in La Crosse: One of my favorite places in La Crosse is Riverside Park! It’s really fun to walk along the river and get ice cream at The Pearl.
  • How's the food: The food in the Caf is pretty good. There are always many options and Steve always has a unique option.
  • Why I chose VU: I chose Viterbo because I fell in love with the community atmosphere that I felt as soon as I started my tour! Everyone was so welcoming and I immediately felt at home.
  • Advice for prospective students conducting their college search: Go with your gut! It’s hard to explain, but you will know the school that you should go to. It’s also really important to go to a school that fits you. Don’t pick a school based on how many of your friends are going there or how much it costs. You will make friends no matter where you go and you can always figure out a way to cover the cost.
  • Career Aspirations: I hope to teach anywhere between kindergarten and third grade! Eventually I also want to pursue an education in psychology to become a school psychologist.
