Where Do You Hang-Out In Columbus?

Outside of home I spend time at different performance venues around town, or if it is a nice day I am perfectly fine with a walk around the neighborhood.

What Was Your Favorite Class In College and Why?

Interpersonal Communication was my favorite class. It was really interesting to learn about the ways that people communicate and listen in different relationships. It has helped me to get a better read on people which is important in every day interactions.

What Do You Love About Columbus State?

I love the education options that Columbus State offers. I truly wish that I would have known about these options when I was transitioning into college. I definitely would have started here at Columbus State first. 

What Advice Would You Give To Incoming, New Students?

My advice would be to listen to your gut, don’t second guess yourself. Treat College like it’s the real world, because it is. Plan ahead. Actively search for helpful resources, because they are out there! WHERE you go to college is not as important as HOW you go to college.  

Your Current Role At Columbus State and How Your Role Helps Students?

As an Admissions Specialist, I am here to help students transition into college. I give students the information and tools that they will need to successfully become an accepted and registered student.
