Becoming a Wildcat
By the end of my senior year, I had made up my mind and chosen a college that was not K-State to attend in the fall. About a month before school started though, I changed my mind and decided to come to K-State. I had a gut feeling that my initial choice was wrong and that I would be missing out on a great experience if I didn’t come to K-State. I couldn’t be happier that I ended up here. The atmosphere is so warm and the people are friendly and caring. I don’t just feel like a name on a roster here; I feel like I’m a part of a huge family.
Joining Greek Life
Although I was involved in various organizations on campus, none really provided me with a social living experience, so I decided I would go through recruitment. I was really nervous about going through with it since no one in my family had been involved in Greek life, but I'm so glad I did. The best advice I can give to anyone going through recruitment is to be yourself because only then will you find a chapter that fits your personality.
The first week of school the residence halls advertised job openings for community assistant positions within the halls. I applied and became a community assistant my first semester. It was really convenient because it’s on campus and in the same building that I lived in. I sat at the front desk and greeted visitors, helped residents when they had questions or problems and took care of other hall-related tasks. My favorite part of the job was meeting all of the people who came to the front desk. I got to see all of the people coming and going, which kept my job pretty entertaining.
Choosing a major
In high school I was really involved in FBLA and DECA, which are both business organizations for high school students. I knew that I wanted to continue my passion for business in college so I chose to major in business. I love how versatile the business degree is and how the major incorporates a variety of skill sets and interests, making me a very well-rounded student. For incoming students, I would suggest taking introductory courses to figure out your interests and what you want to major in.
