Hometown: Davis, OK

Alma Mater: University of Oklahoma, 2014, 2017

Degree: B.S. Social Health, M.Ed. Adult & Higher Education

Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: UD truly offers a unique experience to students.  The combination of the Core curriculum, Rome experience and Catholic intellectual traditions allow students the chance to explore many disciplines while giving them the keys to becoming independent critical thinkers. 

Favorite Spot on Campus: The Capp Bar

Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? You can find me at one of the many parks in the Dallas area probably participating in an epic game of kickball or softball. 

Favorite Book: The Giver by Lois Lowry

Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: The Rustic for brunch

Favorite UD Event: I haven’t gotten to attend any UD events yet, however I am excited to see what Charity Week and Groundhog entail!

Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: I can’t name one specific place, but over spring break of 2017 I had the opportunity to drive across the country from Dallas to Washington state.  The landscapes and wildlife of the northwest are breathtaking. 

Advice to Prospective Students: Visit campus, and take advantage of all of the opportunities available. Meet professors and students, sit in on classes, check out the dorms, get a real sense of what a day in the life of a student from that school is like, and find out if you fit and feel comfortable on campus.
