Psychology, Women and Gender Studies

Franklin, NE

Favorite and/or most impactful course

PSYC 181 with Professor Witt has been the most impactful class for me so far. As a transfer student, this is my first semester at UNL and Professor Witt has both fueled my passion in psychology and helped me feel more welcome on campus. She is a great teacher who also understands that life isn't completely about schoolwork. 

Research or internship experience

I'm a research assistant in the UNL Bar Lab studying the effects that alcohol has on behavior. 

Why you chose Nebraska

I chose UNL because I love Lincoln. I wanted to be in a city, but still not too far away from my family. I've also always dreamed of being a Husker since my first Husker football game with my family back in 2007. 

Student Ambassadors group
