How have your experiences at Ball State shaped your personal growth?
What do you think is most important about Ball State?
Community–everyone who comes through Ball State is not going to stay here and that’s okay. Building community especially on campus helps a ton though! A solid support system greatly improves the overall college experience whether short-lived on not. I think many people don’t want to go because they don’t feel like they would fit in. I believe we all have potential, and supporting one another is an important part of that. Community not only supports and motivates us, but also puts us on the path to where we want to go.
What has been the proudest moment in your career so far?
What are your plans after college?
Can you share one thing that people don’t typically know about you?
Are you involved in any student organizations at Ball State?
I participated in NewsLink Indiana as an anchor, reporter, and associate producer. NewsLink has been amazing, they provide spaces to connect with those who are similar as well as events such as volunteering, game nights, etc. There tends to be an overlap of organization involvement, especially around my peers so we often keep each other updated on all the events around campus.
