Why Westminster? 
I chose Westminster by happy accident. I was originally looking at schools like Truman State and Washington University. I met a school admissions rep. named Adam at a college fair near my house my junior year of high school and casually filled out an information card. The summer before my senior year my mom and I were headed to Missouri to visit the aforementioned schools and Westminster was on the way. After visiting Truman State and hating every second I was on their campus my mom and I set course for St. Louis to see Wash U. Westminster was on the way but after the disappointing experience at Truman I was thinking small schools may not be my cup of tea and was less open to visiting an even smaller school than the one we had just seen. After about an hour of persuasion by my mother I finally agreed to see Westminster’s campus. Upon arrival to the school I instantly fell in love with the grounds and then with the friendly and extremely personable staff. As an added surprise and bonus I was also given the opportunity to speak with the women’s head volleyball coach and was offered a position on the team on the spot. After leaving Westminster I visited Wash U and even though the campus was beautiful I didn’t feel at home like I did at Westminster. 
Where do you see yourself after graduation and how did Westminster help you get there?
I’m not positive where I see myself after graduation but I am sure that wherever I am, when that time comes it will be a place of success and happiness thanks to my experiences at Westminster. 
What is your favorite class and why?
I really enjoyed my seminar class. I developed a close relationship with the people in my seminar and the topics we discussed were interesting and thought provoking. It was more than just learning information it was thinking of the impact certain things and scenarios could have on the future and predicting what those impacts might be. 
What is currently your fondest ‘Westminster’ memory?
Westminster athletes were asked to volunteer for a Special Olympics bowling tournament and there I met Joe Boss, a SOMO coach, who then recruited me to help volunteer with one of his volleyball teams. Because of this event that Westminster facilitated I became deeply involved in the SOMO organization and will become an official staff coach this coming November. My work with SOMO has been meaningful and rewarding beyond explanation. This summer I was able to travel with staff and 44 athletes to coach Special Olympics Track and Field State Summer Games in Springfield MO. Those three days of competition were some of the most exhausting, challenging, motivating, and enjoyable days I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing in my life.
What Motivates You?
My motivation comes from me, my family/friends, my team, and my SOMO athletes and coaching staff. 
An interesting fact about you: 
I came to college having a clear idea of what I wanted for my future and while that idea isn’t completely gone it has changed quite a bit and I am happy that it has. 
Advice to an incoming student:
Take a deep breath the first weeks can be overwhelming but the craziness does die down… a little. Do get involved, but don’t feel like you have to do it all. Do rush; you never know what you’re going to like until you try it. Keep an open mind and remain flexible to change but don’t lose sight of who you are: college is a time for growth and experiencing life on your own, so enjoy it but hold tight to the foundation of morals and ethics your parents have instilled in you because believe it or not they did so for a reason. Follow your passions not your pay check: whatever you choose to do with your life remember you are going to be doing it for a long time so be sure you enjoy it because no amount of money is worth being stuck in a profession you hate. Find time to relax and be alone: when life feels like life is pulling you in a million different directions just take a break even if it’s for 10 minutes. Set reasonable boundaries with the people you live with right away… believe me it just makes life easier.
