What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?
My favorite things to do in my free time are to go cycling, work out, play sports, and listening to music, and playing my guitar.

Best thing about being a CEHS Ambassador:
The best thing about being a CEHS Ambassador is meeting new people and making connections. I also love bragging about how great my college is!

Why did you choose to be a CEHS Ambassador?
I chose to be a CEHS Ambassador because I wanted to meet new people. I heard it was a blast (and it is). I also like educating people in my major/college and the university in general.

Why did you choose to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln? 
I chose to attend UNL because it had a good program that I wanted to study. I wanted a change from a small class B school to a bigger D1 school that was close.

If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
If I could be any animal, I would be a liger (lion and tiger mixed) because I wouldn’t have to follow any of the other animal norms.

Advice to prospective students:
Personally, my best advice I could give prospective students would be to GO TO CLASS and don’t assume that just because there may not be attendance points that you don’t have to show up.  Also, don’t procrastinate and always block off some time each day to chip away at your work load day by day.
