Why did you choose to attend Grand Valley?
Grand Valley stood out to me. I wanted to be around Grand Rapids. I'd heard good things about the city, so this was one way to get out here and explore the other side of the state.

What was the highlight of your Grand Valley experience?
What stands out the most is the people and friends that I've been able to meet at Grand Valley. And then the things that Grand Valley has provided me - the opportunities and education.

How have you benefited from Grand Valley's liberal education foundation?
Grand Valley's liberal education broadened my experiences. I got to learn a lot of different subjects, and then I got to choose and pick which one I really wanted to dive into and focus on.

How has Grand Valley helped you achieve your goals?
In addition to my advertising and public relations degree, I was also getting a minor in entrepreneurship. As I was building my own business outside of the classroom, I was able to learn how to inside of the classroom. I was able to take those skills and lessons and apply them right away.

What advice would you give to prospective students?
Figure out what you enjoy doing the most. If you do something you love doing for the right reasons, then you'll be happy no matter what you do.
