What advice do you have for future transfer students?
Get involved. Broaden your horizons and get out of your comfort zone. I joined DREAM Action NIU, Huskies Service Scholars, the Northern Illinois Athletic Trainer's Student Association (NIATSA), Supporting Opportunities for Latinos (SoL) and Hungry Huskies through the Wesley Foundation to have a more active and involved role on campus.

Who are your favorite professors and why?
Phil Vooris, the Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Medicine and Athletic Training is a very relatable, down-to-earth person and he always makes the learning environment fun. And Sandy Lopez, assistant to the director in the Center for Latino and Latin Studies.  She was the first person I called when I was looking at NIU. She answered me right away, emailed me and told me everything I needed to do.
