What is your favorite thing about TTU?

My favorite thing about TTU is probably the people that make up this campus! The teachers are very personable, on your side, and definitely want to see you succeed. Also, students on campus are very welcoming and willing to lend a hand at anytime.

What is your most memorable TTU experience so far?

My most memorable experience at TTU so far would definitely have to be meeting my friends. The friends I’ve made in college I know are going to be my lifelong friends. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to surround myself with!

How did you choose your major?

I changed my major a lot because I had no idea what I wanted to do. I started helping my mom at the elementary school where she is an interventionist at, and I fell in love with the kids!! I chose psychology and education because I want to be a school counselor one day. I want to be able to help kids with anything they need.

What is your favorite meal at TTU?

My favorite meal at TTU would have to be Backyard Burger. They have the BEST chicken sandwiches!

Advice for incoming college freshman from your experience so far?

Be buddies with your professors!! The more they know you care about your grade the easier it will be for them to help you out throughout the semester.

What is your favorite TTU Tradition and why?

I love our SOLO concerts!! They are always so much fun. Even when I was in high school I would come to TTU’s concerts. Every student gets 2 FREE tickets to the show! We’ve had Brad Paisley, Josh Turner, B.O.B., the comedian Aziz Ansari, the Goo Goo Dolls, etc. I can’t wait to see who is coming this fall!

What kind of extracurricular activities are you involved in on campus and in the community?

I am involved with my sorority here on campus. I am also very involved in my community. Since I grew up here in Cookeville, I am always helping out with something in this town that I love. Whether it’s helping out with the Fall Fun Fest, the Tony Stone Cookeville Cook-off, Susan G. Komen Race for the cure, etc. I am always up to something.

What movie star would you play in a movie? Why?

Jennifer Aniston!! Mostly because I’m obsessed with her, and also because I feel like she’s very chill, has a great sense of humor, and is easy to get along with and that is basically me in a nutshell.

What was your biggest mistake as a freshman? What did you learn from that experience?

My biggest mistake as a freshman was not studying as much as I should have. College schoolwork was a big transition for me compared to high school work. I learned that all I needed to do was add a few more study hours to my schedule and if I was having trouble in a class just to ask my professor for tips and they were more than happy to help.

What is your favorite book?

My favorite book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.
