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

I am still figuring it out, but I am very interested in working in a music business; perhaps in their P.R. or advertising department!

What have you participated in as a student?

I am a Liberal Arts Dean’s Ambassador, I work in the Liberal Arts Advising Office, I was in Gold and Black Sound pep band, I’m in Varsity Band, Kappa Kappa Psi (co-ed service fraternity for band), and I participated in pet-a-puppy club last semester.

How did you choose/decide on your major?

I decided my major because I want to make a positive impact and felt that my skills would be used accurately in these majors. I also chose them because they piqued my interest.

What are you most proud of?

I passed my playing audition for AAMB for next season. I am also most proud of getting involved heavily in band and having a good freshman year GPA.

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

I look forward to broadening my horizons and making connections and memories that will last a lifetime.

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

My favorite tradition at Purdue is definitely the fountain runs! They’re so fun! When I did BGR, I got stuck in the John Purdue Memorial Fountain because I’m so short, it was slippery, and people kept splashing me! It was hilarious when two friends had to help me out!

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

I am super excited to take my Music theory course because I love learning more about something that I am passionate about and know I will use in the future. I think that can be said about a lot of liberal arts courses though; they’re practical because they apply to everyday life, are enjoyable, and give you a new perspective on the world.
