What is your dream job and what do you hope to do after graduation?

Supreme Court Judge, I would get my law degree from the University of Chicago after I finish my undergraduate degree here at Purdue. I guess I just love the idea of being 100,000 dollars in debt as a 27-year-old!

What have you participated in as a student?

I am currently an Ambassador for the College of Liberal Arts, a writer for the Purdue Exponent, and a proud member of the official sixth man of Purdue Basketball (The Paint Crew).

How did you choose/decide on your major?

Coming out of high school, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, and hey, my whole plan could be different this time next year, but I knew what I was good at and I knew what I enjoyed: writing, reading, and arguing (sometimes a little too much). I decided to take classes that played to my strengths and allowed me to follow my interests.

What are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the relationships that I have built during my freshman year. I have met a lot of awesome people and made some friendships that I hope will last a lifetime.

What are you most looking forward to as a student at Purdue?

I am most excited to see how much I change over my four years. If high school prepares you for college, then college must mold you into the person that you’re going to be for the rest of your life.

What is your favorite or most memorable Purdue tradition/memory so far?

The Cubs winning the World Series. Hands Down. People running naked down State Street, a giant mob around the Bell Tower, crazy night. (P.S. if you think I’m a bandwagon fan, I’ll gladly show you my 2007 Ryan Theriot jersey.)

Which class have you taken (or are going to take) that you are most excited about and why?

AGEC 331: I haven’t taken it yet, but I know that it is an experiential sales class. My dad took the course in 1983 and has the syllabus and class binder. I am interested to see how the class has changed in the past 36 years.
