Why did you choose to attend Grand Valley?
I always saw myself at Grand Valley. I saw myself going to school with my sister, and the first moment I stepped onto campus I saw myself there; I absolutely loved it.

What do you like best about Grand Valley?
Apart from the amazing friends I have here, I absolutely love the scenery and being able to walk around campus during the different seasons. I love watching the changes of the colors and just being able to relax and allow myself to get away from the day-to-day pressures.

How have you benefited from Grand Valley's liberal education foundation?
I came to Grand Valley undecided, not knowing what I wanted to do. So, being able to take a whole bunch of general education classes and a variety of classes that I normally wouldn't have the opportunity to take really helped me scope out what I liked from what I didn't like.

How will Grand Valley help you meet your future goals?
I'm involved in a lot of different programs here. Like the Multicultural Cohort Program, which allows me to meet people from different backgrounds. I also participate in Young Life through Campus Ministry, which helps me grow spiritually, individually, and intellectually.

How has Grand Valley's faculty made a difference in your college experience?
The faculty members here are really nice. They're always there to help me out with every question I have, and they give me advice and support and guidance.

What advice would you give to prospective students?
Enjoy college as much as you can. It's a great experience and I wish everybody had the opportunity to experience it.
