Favorite meal in the caf? Chili! No joke. Or Steve's omelettes.  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 long 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 new 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!
