WHY WARTBURG: Wartburg had everything I wanted and needed for a positive college experience. I was involved in sports and choir in high school and wanted to continue both of these activities through college, which I have. Another important part of my college search was finding a school that fit my academic needs. I was looking for small class sizes and approachable professors. Wartburg offers both. All of the professors I have taken classes with have been more than willing to go out of their way to answer my questions and assist me in any way needed. 

WHAT DID YOU NEVER IMAGINE YOU WOULD DO BEFORE COMING TO WARTBURG: I thought it would be difficult to be involved and balance by studies, but I have found that the people and the amazing organizations here on campus allow me to be a part of many aspects that make up Wartburg College. 

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN: I have made about 16 quilts and am restoring an old tractor with my dad.

HOW IS WARTBURG PREPARING YOU FOR THE FUTURE: Wartburg is preparing me to be the best leader I can be and has taught me the importance of service in a community. Being a part of this college has shown me what individuals and groups of people can do to make a difference in the world.
