What do you like best about UNO?
How interdisciplinary this campus is. There are so many different things you can study at UNO! But what’s most important about that, to me, is that the faculty and staff really encourage you to explore multiple areas of interest and see how they interact and relate to one another. You’re going to have a major anywhere you go to college, but at UNO there’s a great emphasis on seeing how you can add concentrations, minors, internships, etc. to help you merge your passions. That’s really cool and fun to be a part of!
What do you like to do most in Omaha?
Eat! Although, 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 wish I’d taken 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 let myself take an extra semester and taken more classes that had nothing to do with my major (like Animal Behavior, Taekwondo, or Watercolor) just because they interested me.
