I love cooking, anything outdoors — especially camping, boating and walking — traveling, antiquing, volleyball, softball, reading a great book or magazine, dancing and singing like no one is watching, Zumba and finding new projects on Pinterest.

"I chose K-State because it offers the total package in a university — dedicated faculty and exciting programs. The minute I walked on campus for the first time, I got 'the feeling,' the feeling that you get when you just know something is right."

During my senior year, I had the opportunity to meet the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Richard Myers, a very active alumnus of K-State. As a child of a military member, it was a wonderful opportunity to meet him and hear him share his life experiences.
Personalize your success
The transition from high school to college can bring a lot of uncertainty at first. The study load increases, class time decreases and freedom is often much greater than high school. The biggest hurdle is learning how to effectively study in college. Remember to utilize K-State’s free tutoring, attend class and find a new favorite campus study spot.
My Introduction to Leadership Studies class, LEAD 212, continues to help me after college. I learned so much about myself, my goals and where I want to head in my future.
Setting the scene
I loved hanging out at Radina's in the Leadership Studies Building. While studying and relaxing, I would always run into someone I knew while enjoying one of Radina's famous iced teas. The coffee shop is right on campus, so you’re never more than a few minutes walk to your next class.
Little do you know
One of the most surprising things about me is that I was a military child and spent my sophomore year of high school living in South Korea.
