Why did you decide to come to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln?

I decided to come to UNL because my dad went here and raised me to be a Cornhusker. GBR!

What is your favorite thing about the University of Nebraska–Lincoln? 

I love how friendly the faculty and staff are at UNL. No matter which college or department you are in, everyone is extremely understanding and helpful. 

What is your favorite class you have taken so far and why?

My favorite class I have taken so far has been AECN 141, which is Introduction to the Economics of Agriculture. This was the class that decided my major. 

What are your plans post-graduation?

Hopefully get a job! I would like to be in extension education. 

What is your life like outside of school? 

Life outside of school consists of me going out with my friends, going to $5 movies before 11 a.m., riding on the bike trails, trying all the new places that pop up every month and going to concerts.
