What are some of your favorite things to do in Columbia? They are some fantastic restaurants in Columbia like Flatbranch and Las Margaritas to name my favorite.  I also enjoying going to various sporting events throughout the area.


Favorite outdoor activity: Walking my dog (Colby) at the parks throughout Columbia.  I’m always willing to play sports: football, basketball, softball, sand volleyball etc…

People would be surprised to know that… My closet is color coordinated… don’t judge! 


What advice would you give students about choosing a college?  My advice would be to view the campus on a tour, meet professors, talk to current students, and walk around the city of the college.  It’s important to get a feel for the atmosphere of the campus and the surrounding areas.

What were your favorite activities or organizations in college and why?  My favorite organization in college was the Student Ambassador program, because I enjoyed giving tours and showing prospective students why Columbia College is such a great institution.  Also Science Club was near and dear to my heart because I helped set up the club and make it one of the best clubs on campus. 

What makes Columbia College different? The professors, the one on one attention you get from the professors at Columbia College is one of a kind. Not only are they readily available to educate, but their knowledge and experiences within their prospective fields is second to none.
