  • Favorite meal in the caf? Steve’s gyros are great and definitely one of my favorite meals.
  • Favorite place on campus and why? I love the Assisi courtyard. It’s so beautiful and a great place to study outside, set up a hammock, or just have a conversation with a friend. 
  • 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.
