Hometown: Lisle

Major: History major

Transferred From: College of DuPage

What advice do you have for future transfer students?
Take a UNIV class. It helps a lot because you meet other people and learn about resources offered at NIU. I learned about NIU's counseling services this way and that has really helped me.

What do you like most about NIU?
There's a lot! I really like the free events. Last semester I held a skunk and was able to pet a bat! I like getting to meet new people so I look for events all the time. The campus is really pretty too! This is my first winter seeing the lagoon frozen. It’s a relaxing campus. I don't feel like I have to rush all the time. I can take my time if I want to.

Who are your favorite professors and why?
Dr. Kuby is amazing. She’s accommodating, very smart and can direct you in almost any way you want to go with history. My counselor Vera Lind helps make sure I'm on top of things with my classes and she listens to me. Dr. Kelly Smith was a huge help with finding resources like academic and career counseling.
