Perceptions of Body Image Among College Men (Master's Thesis)
Tell us a little about yourself:
I am a proud alum of UNO. After my studies at UNO, I earned my degree in College Student Affairs at Eastern Illinois University. I have been fortunate to work for several universities of various size, geographic location, and student cultures and am blessed to be back and build upon the strong relationships among institutions of higher education. One of my passions in working for a university is advising student groups whether it is a fraternity/sorority group, sports club, or personal development group.
What is your favorite thing about UNO?
Since my first semester as a student here, my favorite thing about UNO has always been the opportunities that are available and the faculty and staff who support you. From on-campus employment, fun events, to strengthening community relationships, UNO has always played a crucial role in sucess. This success is driven by the values of the University which is seen no matter where you are on- or off-campus.
What do you like to do most in Omaha?
Where to start. I love to be out and about attending events and visiting new ones. If you haven't been to one of the Omaha Farmer's Markets, it should be up there on anyone's list. The Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is a great spot for connecting with friends and family who are in town just like the College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park offers a spectacular environment in downtown Omaha. If you enjoy coffee and/or tea, you can easily find a different cafe to go to every week.
What piece of advice do you offer to students entering the college search process?
If pursuing a college degree is even remotely on your radar, ask as many questions as you can! Navigating the college search process will look different to each person and will have it's own unique challenges and successes.
