Featured Adult Learner: Amber Gilbert

Amber GilbertAmber Gilbert is a freshman commuter student majoring in psychology with a minor in art. She plans on becoming an art therapist, because that combines her two passions.

In the time that she can find in-between classes and working two jobs, Amber enjoys reading and making all kinds of art, especially photography.

A fun fact about her is that her eyes change color both gradually and suddenly, going from brown to hazel to blue, etc. Yes, we’re serious. You can ask her about it. It’s fascinating.

Her advice for all incoming and current students is to space your classes out throughout the day, learn good time management and make sure to keep some kind of food on you at all times.
