Where Do You Hang-Out In Columbus?

I like to hang out in Westerville. 

What Was Your Favorite Class In College and Why?

My favorite class was a film class about cult films called, "Cinema of the Underbelly".

What Do You Love About Columbus State?

I love our philosophy of open access and that anyone is able to come here to get an education.    

What Advice Would You Give To Incoming, New Students?

Get involved!  College is different than high school in that you'll need to be more assertive in finding clubs and activities, but once you do that, you'll love coming to campus.   

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

I'm the Program Coordinator for Adult and Military students, so I help adult students decide which degree will best fit their goals.  Then, I help get them through the enrollment process, so they're ready to start learning.
