What is your favorite local restaurant?

Gen Korean BBQ!!! I love meat and they have so many different types of meat!

How did your college experience help shape who you are?

I had awesome academic advisors that helped me throughout my college experience. Their guidance made me realize that I too, wanted to be a person that could help other students. I had such a wonderful experience and I wanted to be able to share it and help others have an enjoyable time at college.

What advice do you have for students beginning their college search?

Start planning ASAP! It is never too early to start preparing for college. Make sure that you research the major you are interested in and take a look at the degree plans and the types of classes you will be taking.
