I love everything outdoors, especially biking, hiking and fishing. I’m also an avid fan of movie soundtracks, roller coasters and Star Trek. I also do a pretty mean “Electric Slide.”

Growing up in a Wildcat family, I always knew K-State was a school I would love to attend. Visiting the campus is what sealed the deal. I was able to experience the same atmosphere of community, family and hard work that I had known growing up.
Personal plot line
I switched my major twice during my K-State career. I knew marketing was right for me after using some of the career resources that K-State Career and Employment Services offers. I wanted a degree that would allow me to work in an interactive environment and use my passions to help fulfill the needs of consumers. It was about two minutes into my first marketing class when I knew I had made the right choice.
I took a digital media course my sophomore year in which I “covered” a local news story. I got to shoot footage, edit it all together and present it just like a news broadcast in front of a green screen. I never imagined myself sitting behind a news desk, but it was a lot of fun.
Meet and greet
I met K-State alum Jo Searles when he came to speak to my finance class. He was the first African-American floor member of the New York Stock Exchange and also played for the New York Giants. It was awesome to hear about his success in business and the advice he had for the class.
I never studied abroad during my undergraduate career, and it’s something I wish I could go back and experience. I would encourage everyone to check out the K-State Study Abroad Office, and make studying abroad a goal during your time at K-State.
Paving a smooth path
You find out quickly that no one is going to make you go to class. In college, it’s individual responsibility that gets you there. Going to class every day and paying attention to the material goes a long way toward achieving a solid GPA from the start.
Head football coach Bill Snyder was the best speaker I heard while at K-State. I truly admire the conviction he operates with in every aspect of his life. He has great advice that applies to school, relationships and work. If you head out to the Week of Welcome kick-off at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, you can probably hear him too!
I had my own radio show on my hometown station during high school. I cleverly named it “The Jeremy Show” and played music, interviewed special guests and reported on weird news stories every week.
Favorite local eats
If I had to have a last meal, if would definitely be pancakes bananas foster from “The Chef,” an amazing breakfast joint in Manhattan.
