Why did you choose NDSU?  From seventh grade to my senior year, I spent a week in June on campus for State FFA Convention. During that time, I always felt a sense of comfort. I became familiar with the campus and just felt at home. I have honestly known that NDSU was going to be where I went to college since seventh grade. 

Why did you select the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources?  Growing up on a farm, I have always been interested in agriculture. I just knew agriculture was going to be a part of my future career. NDSU is also known for their CAFSNR, and I knew that through this college, I could be successful.

Scholarships you have received and why scholarships are important to you.  Ag Country Farm Credit Services, Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative, Ambulance Appreciation, North Dakota FFA, NDSU Honor Award, CHS Foundation Star Partner, Duane and Joan Erickson, Antelope, Freshman Academic, Russell Janssen. 

For me, scholarships help take my focus off the thought of having to pay for school. By receiving scholarships, I am able to focus my attention more on my classes and getting good grades.

Clubs/organizations you’re involved in and why involvement in activities is beneficial.  I am currently treasurer for the Food Science/Food Safety Club. Being involved in different activities is a good way to connect and collaborate with different people. It also can help provide scholarships and even job opportunities in the future. 

What is your greatest memory at NDSU? My greatest memory at NDSU has been meeting new people. Whether that be someone I connected with in one of my classes or talking to someone new at a football game, a lot of these friendships will last a lifetime.

What are your future plans? After graduation, I plan to obtain a job within the food science field. My ultimate goal is to be a Flavor Technologist. I am excited to see where the future will take me.
