  • Favorite place or thing to do in La Crosse: I love being outside so it’s always fun to hike the bluffs! Hixon Trails are a great place to go for a hike. Also, I spent a lot of time at coffee shops downtown studying or spending time with friends. Jules and The Root Note are two of my favorites!
  • Why I chose VU: I chose Viterbo because I fell in love with the campus on my tour. I loved the community environment and the people I met were so welcoming and friendly. I knew that this was a place that would feel like home to me. I also really liked the smaller class sizes and the personal attention I knew I would get from a smaller school like Viterbo.
  • Advice for prospective students conducting their college search: Don’t be afraid to ask questions and really investigate the schools you’re interested in. College is an exciting new adventure so spend time making sure you can find a place where you can thrive and will be able to call home.
