Favorite courses: The classes I most enjoyed were my psychology classes. I enjoyed learning about ways in which to help people. 

Biggest surprise about ACU:  The faculty and staff really care about the students.

Advice to incoming students:  Do not underestimate the power of hard work. It is important to study hard and do well in classes, especially if you want to attend graduate school.

Why did you decide to come to ACU?

My dad went here, and I also wanted to pursue higher education in a Christian environment that was relatively close to home.

How has ACU prepared you academically for your future?

The diversity of the staff and teaching styles have helped me learn to succeed in different environments.

What have you gained through your involvement with LYNAY?

LYNAY has been a great place to meet people with diverse backgrounds that I would not have otherwise met. I am thankful that I was able to participate in LYNAY.

What do you hope to do after graduation?

I will be attending graduate school at ACU in the psychology–counseling master's program. Upon completion of my master's degree, I want to work in a juvenile detention center as a counselor.
