Why did you choose William Woods?

I chose William Woods because I loved the atmosphere. I came from a huge high school, so I appreciate being able to recognize every face on campus. I felt so loved and welcomed when I visited and it’s remained that way since I’ve been here.

What campus organizations are you involved in?

The Honors Program, Deans’ Council, Cru, STAT, and Rotaract.

What is your favorite thing to do in Fulton?

I love to explore the Brick District! A walk downtown is a great stress relief… especially if it involves ice cream from Saults or spinach and artichoke dip from Bek’s! I also love going to the movies and taking short trips to Columbia or Jeff City.

What is the best LEAD event you’ve ever been to?

I went to a LEAD event last year led by a lady who grew up with Dissociative Identity Disorder and just talked about her childhood, how she developed the disorder, and how she has coped with it. Being a Psychology major, this was right up my alley and I enjoyed every second of it! There really are LEAD events for everyone.
