What advice do you have for future students? A good start is a great way to stay ahead of the game. Make sure you are aware of all deadlines and what steps you need to take in order to succeed. Planning is one of the most important aspects of the college experience.

What are 3 things you love about NIU? I love the students and faculty on campus; everyone on campus gives off such a positive vibe. I also enjoy the location of Northern; DeKalb is a wonderful community where you truly feel at home. Lastly, I am a huge fan of NIU's football program, Go Huskies!

What is your favorite place on campus? My favorite place on campus has got to be Huskie Stadium during football season. There's no better excitement and atmosphere than at the stadium on game day.
