What attracted you to your major and what are your plans after graduation? What attracted me to my major in Pre-Nursing was the fact that I love helping other people. After I graduate Chadron State and nursing school I plan on living in Denver and hopefully working at the Denver Children’s Hospital.
What are you involved in on campus? I am involved in a group called Chi Alpha, basically a giant youth group on campus. This semester at Chi Alpha I had the opportunity to join the leadership team and it has been an awesome experience so far.
Where can we find you Tuesdays at 7 p.m.? I have met an amazing group of people at Chadron State, I consider them family, and you can find us hanging out in the Student Center, watching Intramural games, or just hanging out in the lobby most nights. We always find something fun to do.
Share a story about a professor? All the professors here are amazing and so understanding! Last semester when my brother got in a car accident every single professor was extremely concerned with my wellbeing and they emailed me daily to make sure I was doing ok while I was in Denver. I love how the professors are here for every individual student, ultimately making us more than just a number.
Why did you choose CSC and why do you stay? I was dead set on going to CSC after my first tour last year; I loved the atmosphere and the professors that I met. I stay because I have met so many amazing friends and professors. I couldn’t see myself anywhere else.
