Why did you choose to work for SBU? I loved being a student at SBU and have continued to reap the benefits of the education I received and the relationships I built here. I chose to work for SBU because I was excited to help other students have that same opportunity.
Favorite thing to do in Bolivar: hang with the teenagers I’ve gotten to know through Bolivar K-Life—watching SBU basketball games, eating giant pancakes at Brenda’s, and having movie nights
Favorite college memory: There are so many! Some favorites are cheering for intramural football games, playing with kids at an orphanage in Guatemala, giving a senior piano recital, and many spontaneous dorm adventures.
Tips for success in first year at SBU: Challenge yourself to build some relationships and get involved in some things that are outside of your comfort zone. College is your golden opportunity to figure out what kind of a person you are going to be and what direction your life is going to go…That’s a journey that’s worth a few risks!
What SBU means to me: SBU is the place where I grew to have a much deeper relationship with the Lord, He sharpened my vision for the direction of my life, and I was equipped to carry out that vision.
