Career goal

“I hope to attend police academy after I graduate and join the police force.”

How have Carthage faculty had an impact on your life or Carthage career?

“Eric Larsen, adjunct faculty member for the Sociology Department, is the reason I decided to be a police officer. He always was very honest, and during our classes, he always made sure to relate the subject to real life.”

Favorite class

“My favorite class has been Criminology. It was a class I never put a lot of thought into, but I learned so much.”

Campus involvement

“I belong to 1G, which means a lot to me since I am a first-generation student. I also am in Delta Theta Epsilon. I am also on the e-board for Pi Sigma Epsilon — the co-ed business fraternity on campus. I hold the position of VP of Administration.”

Toughest class

“My toughest class was Macro-Economics.”

Internships or on-campus employment

“I will be a student ambassador at TGI Greek, which is a T-shirt company, and market for their company on campus. Then I will intern at Justice Point in Racine over the summer.”

Opportunities at Carthage

“Carthage has given my the opportunity to find amazing friends and find myself along the way.”

Scholarships

“I received the Krauss-William C. Scholarship. Receiving this scholarship was a blessing. I am a first-generation student and am an independent. It is tough, but every scholarship I receive makes it easier. This scholarship means that I am able to go to college and do what I always have dreamed of doing.”

Favorite moments and memories at Carthage

“My favorite memories are playing sand volleyball and taking late-night walks by the lake and just listening to the waves crash in.”

Favorite spot on campus

“My favorite spot on campus is by the rocks behind Pat Tarble Residence Hall. It is so peaceful there, especially at night.”

What would your 8-year-old self think of you now?

“My 8-year-old self would be excited but scared because I always thought I would be a teacher when I was a kid.”

Why should other students consider your major? What advice do you have for them?

“If you study, you will succeed. Also, keep an open mind since it can come with some tough jobs in the future.”

Why Carthage?

“I chose Carthage because as soon as I toured the campus, I knew that this would be my home.”
