Why did you choose HSU?

My dad attended HSU in the early 70's and so it was a place that I heard some stories about growing up and then visited when I was in 6th grade while I was on a family road trip. When it was time to apply for schools my mom told me to apply to one more school so I chose Humboldt. After visiting all the schools that I applied to, Humboldt was the clear winner! I loved the atmosphere and how the campus is surrounded by redwood trees and how we are so close to the ocean. The smaller campus was also great.

Most embarrassing thing on your iPod?

Miley Cyrus - Party in the U.S.A.

How do you have fun in Humboldt County?

I really like hiking and hanging out at the beach on sunny days.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about serving others, especially in developing world countries. I just got back from a trip to Haiti over spring break where I was at a school and orphanage. It was such a life changing week, my heart breaks for those kids.

Most fascinating thing you have learned recently?

Today we learned some basic American Sign Language in one of my recreation classes and now I am looking into learning more about ASL.

Who was your favorite professor?

Any of the Recreation professors, they are all so great!!!

Have any tips for new students?

Get involved in something on campus, it will really help you make new friends and to learn new things about the area.
