What is your favorite thing about TTU?

My favorite thing about TTU is the size and relaxed atmosphere of the campus. On any given day you will see someone relaxing on Main Quad or doing homework on South Patio, and you always pass a familiar face.

What is your most memorable TTU experience so far?

My most memorable experience has been going through sorority recruitment. I have met so many incredible women that I would probably not have met otherwise, as well as grown as a person in my confidence, strength, and faith.

How did you choose your major?

I was first introduce to Physical Therapy after my grandmother had a hip replacement, and not too long after her third hip replacement I decided PT may be something I would be interested in, and I began to check it out. Since, I have observed in different PT clinics and have decided to go in the direction of a Pediatric Physical Therapist.

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

My first semester of freshman year, I was afraid I was going to run out of Dining Dollars. I would never use them, and by the end of the semester I realized I still had three fourths of my Dining Dollars left. Needless to say, I ended up wasting half of them.

What is your favorite book?

My favorite book when I was little was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. It was the first book I could read to myself, and still to this day remains my favorite.
