What do you like best about UNO?
The faculty. UNO Faculty members are leading researchers in their field and very involved in on-campus and throughout Omaha. Yet their number one priority is always helping students. Our faculty host office hours to discuss course work, help students with job applications, connect students to jobs and internships, and give general college advice. I even know instructors who have traveled across the state to attended sporting events and concerts just to cheer on their students!
What do you like to do most in Omaha?
Eat! Honestly, that's my favorite thing to do anywhere. Omaha has hundreds of amazing restaurants ranging from small local shacks, to national chains, to restaurants ran by award-winning chefs. Additionally, we have great farmers markets and regional food markets that allow me to cook recipes from around the world, even in the middle of the U.S.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I'm a huge geek! I love comic books, science fiction, and video games; especially ones with strong female characters. A trip to San Diego Comic-Con is high on my bucket list.
If you could go back to college, what is one thing you would do differently?
I would take more classes just because I wanted to, especially ones that intimidated me. I changed my major twice and my minor three times, so I wound up having to focus just on required classes to get done in four years. But I wish I'd taken more classes that had nothing to do with my major (like Animal Behavior, Taekwondo, or Watercolor) just because they interested me.
