Meet the Viterbo Voyagers

Emily VandenheuvelEmily Vandenheuvel

  • Hometown: Rockford, MN
  • Major: Theatre Education, Minor: Music
  • Campus Involvement: Theatrical productions, work in scene shop, Voyager
  • Favorite meal in the caf? Chili! No joke. Or Steve's omeletes. I get very excited about both.
  • Favorite place on campus and why? Either Assisi Courtyard or the dance studio in the Fine Arts Center. I love when the courtyard is bustling with people when it's nice outside, it's beautiful! I love doing homework, reading, or just hanging out there. I love the dance studio because I enjoy dancing so much and I've spent a lot of time there watching myself and my colleagues grow.
  • Favorite place or thing to do in La Crosse? I love running/riding bike down to Riverside Park when it's nice outside. I also enjoy going to the farmer's market downtown, and I LOVE the Rotary Lights in Riverside Park near Christmas.
  • Why I chose VU: The feeling—everyone at Viterbo went out of his or her way to make me feel welcome and it mattered if I came here or not. I'll never forget that. I just knew I had to come here. Also, the awesome theatre department!
  • Advice for prospective students conducting their college search? Follow your heart.
  • Career aspirations? I aspire to be a high school theatre teacher, and who knows what else I might end up doing!
