Advice to students: If you are even slightly considering studying abroad—do it! You will never have more time in your life than you do now. Once you graduate and are working, your vacation days are limited. There are scholarships and other support available for IUPUI students—make sure you check out your options. My friends and I took a three-month backpacking trip in Europe after our junior year of college on a "shoestring" budget, and hands-down, it was one of the best summers of my life.
If you could be any major in your cluster, what would it be? Why?: I would choose to major in technical writing (in the school of Engineering and Technology). I really enjoy writing and creative thinking, and talking about science—it would be the perfect blend!
Biography: I am a proud Wisconsinite and a self-proclaimed french fry connoisseur (ask me about my favorite fries in Indy). In my free time, you can find me walking the Monon Trail, working on my Chacos tan lines, or trying out a new vegetarian recipe. I am married to a wonderful middle school German teacher who is the introverted half to my extroverted self.
