Majoring in Sociology with a minor in Political Science | Department of Sociology
What is your dream job and what do you hope to do after graduation?
Director of Operations for a NCAA Division 1 Athletic team.
What have you participated in as a student?
I have been a member of Boiler Tracks, SPARC, and College of Liberal Arts Leadership Council. I am also a student manager for the Women's Basketball team as well as the Softball team. I work with the office of Admissions as an Admissions Ambassador where I help recruit future Boilermakers. I also was a Boiler Gold Ambassador where I helped out with the recruitment office for the Purdue Football team. I have gotten numerous opportunities to connect with Purdue Alum and attend major events. I have been invited to dinner with President Mitch Daniels along with other students where I was able to build my networking skills. As a Sociology student, I was chosen to be the student emcee for the Coleman Report Symposium.
How did you choose/decide on your major?
I was in Athletic Training to start out, I knew I was missing something and it wasn't until I took a sociology course, SOC 310-Race and Ethnic Diversity, when I learned this is what I wanted to major in. I can do so many exciting things with a sociology major I found out. If I want to go into athletics I can or if I decide to work in higher education I can do that as well.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of having received an internship for the Summer of 2017 with Ascend Indiana. I was their Talent Placement Coordinator Intern.
What are you most looking forward to as a student at Purdue?
As a senior, I am looking forward to what Purdue can bring to me once I graduate. I have gotten the best experience, socially and academically, throughout my years here.
What is your favorite or most memorable Purdue tradition/memory?
My favorite tradition has to be fountain runs. I feel as though, being a college student, I worry about many things that cause me to be stressed out. Fountain Runs allow you to forget all of those things and let out your inner 12-year-old self, running around campus through the fountains.
Which class have you taken (or are going to take) that you are most excited about and why?
I'm really excited to take bowling. You would have never thought that was something to take in college, but it's exciting to know I'll be able to not have a lot of worries because it's just bowling and you can't not have fun while bowling.
