Favorite and/or most impactful course

All-Collegiate Choir. I've loved singing for as long as I can remember, but was apprehensive about pursuing it in college. All-Collegiate was the solution to my problem: a low stress, low commitment ensemble with no formal audition process. Everything about the course has exceeded my expectations: the choral arrangements are phenomenal, the people I sing with are phenomenal, and I am so humbled by the amount of opportunities I am given because of it. It has formed my favorite collegiate memories, allowed me to meet some of my closest friends, and is an experience I will look back on fondly for the rest of my life. 

POLS250 with Dr. Hibbing was also a favorite course of mine. The educational experience I received in that class was incomparable: not only did it allow me to delve deeper into political polarization, a topic I am fascinated by, but it also introduced me to the astounding work Dr. Hibbing has dedicated his life towards. Though I am not particularly science-oriented, having the pleasure to hear Dr. Hibbing so passionately describe his research in how our genetics and neuroscience influence our political beliefs was beyond incredible. I would recommend the course to anyone, regardless of major. 

Research or internship experience

I am in the application process for internships for Spring and Summer of 2022, so fingers crossed!

Other involvement

I am the treasurer for Civitas Consulting at UNL as well as a member of the Young Democrats student organization on campus.

Why you chose Nebraska

I chose to attend UNL because I felt that it fit all the pieces of the puzzle I was looking for in the college admissions process. I always knew that I wanted to go to a bigger school, and from the first time I stepped on UNL campus, I felt welcome. Between the amazingly helpful recruitment staff, academic programs that fit my interest, and scholarships that made it fiscally possible for me to come, it became clear that UNL was the superior choice.
