I work with first year students from the Lincoln and St. Louis areas.

My advice to a student in the college search process is: Do your research and find a school that’s a good fit for you. You can start exploring online, but a website can only give you a limited amount of information. Visit all schools you’re interested in and get the “feel” of each campus. You’ll know what feels right when you’re there.

I work with first-year students from Omaha, Northeast Nebraska, and the Northeast, Southeast, Southcentral, and Northwest United States.

My favorite place on campus is: The stone bench in between Old Main and the music building. It is the perfect spot to study, journal, or sit and collect your thoughts. Also, it is always surrounded by nature depending on the season: fall = leaves, winter = snow, spring = flowers.

I work with first year students at Papillion-LaVista High School in Papillion, Nebraska.

My advice to a student in the college search process is: The next four years will influence the remainder of your life, so it is important to research every opportunity a college affords. Your coursework, friendships, faculty engagement, living arrangements, internships, and extracurricular activities (to name a few) will all change your perception on life and influence decisions and outcomes. Each of these opportunities are integral to your development as a person and will be abundant during your time at NWU.

I work with first-year students from Northeast Nebraska, Iowa, Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, Utah, California, and Hawaii.

My advice to a student in the college search process is: Ask yourself, "How will your school help achieve your goals?” The most important factor in your college decision is what you want to accomplish! Your college needs to help you get there. Whether you have a major in mind or want room to explore, it’s all about realizing your individual dreams.
