My three favorite things about K-State are football, student organizations and Call Hall ice cream — but that's just the tip of the (purple) iceberg! If I'm not binging on "New Girl" or belting out karaoke songs, you can probably find me cheering on the 'Cats or relaxing with a coffee from Radina's Coffeehouse in the Leadership Studies Building.

I knew K-State was right for me when I visited for Senior Day. I definitely felt the excitement of everyone around me. After meeting with K-State students and getting to know more about their experiences, I realized I could really see myself succeeding here.
My favorite memory at K-State is going to my first K-State football game! I sat in the student section right at the 50-yard line did the Wabash Cannon Ball for the first time with complete strangers. It was so awesome to be a part of one of K-State's favorite traditions.
Before K-State, I never would have imagined that I would run for election to student senate. Even crazier, I didn't think I would get elected! It was a great organization to be involved in, and it was fascinating to be a part of the decision-making process for K-State students. Plus, I met some great people in the process.
My favorite student organization is the Black Student Union. BSU provides so many opportunities for students to learn about their culture, discuss current events affecting the black community and college professionalism. I was on the executive board for two years as the special programs director and the new student support director. Because of BSU, I found that my passion is helping students and I grew as a leader on campus.
Rewriting the draft
When I came to K-State, I didn't know what I wanted to major in. I chose the open option program, and my advisor was really great at helping me find out what I wanted to do. After changing my major from pre-optometry to political science, I finally chose public relations. I liked the classes and it was a good fit for what I wanted to do after college.
Stick to the script
I think the secret to getting good grades freshman year is time management. Often, freshmen come to college with wide eyes, ready to explore and discover, which can cause them to put off preparing for classes. Remember that school always comes first and that it's okay to sacrifice going out with friends to get rest and study!

The Union Programing Council, better known as UPC, always hosts free events on campus. They bring in exciting performers, organize grocery bingo and even turn the entire Student Union into a laser tag arena! I made my best memories with my friends at UPC events. Take advantage!
People wouldn't guess that I am a karate kid! I've been doing Kenpo Karate for six years.
On the side
One of my favorite hobbies is singing. Karaoke, anyone?
I could eat the raspberry bean dip from So Long Saloon in Aggieville every day! It may sound strange but it is so delicious.
