My favorite KU memory is… 
Working with undergraduate KU students at summer camps and seeing how excited they were to show off their "KU calves". I didn't see the big deal until I came to campus for the first time and climbed the hill.

Advice to college students:​
Before class or on the bus, put your phone/computer away. Use these opportunities to talk to your peers. Classes are much more enjoyable when you build relationships with your peers and often lead to social interactions outside of class.

Favorite quote:​
"If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together there is something you must always remember. You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." - Christopher Robin

My favorite movie is…
Often forgotten disney animated films such as - Treasure Planet, Emperors New Groove, Lilo and Stitch, and Atlantis the Lost Empire
