“My favorite KU memory is…”

Attending KU football games! Everyone always thinks of basketball when they think of KU, but I really fell in love with the atmosphere at the football games. Crisp game day mornings on the hill have become a tradition. Many of my favorite KU memories were from tailgates set against the amazing fall colors on campus spent with friends and family.

“I became a Jayhawk because…”

I’ve wanted to be a Jayhawk for as long as I can remember. I loved hearing my dad’s KU stories growing up, and I knew being a Jayhawk meant being a part of something special. From attending basketball games, joining a sorority to writing for the student newspaper, I knew KU could offer amazing opportunities.

“Being a Jayhawk means…”

Being a part of the best exclusive – and inclusive – club! I love wearing a Jayhawk shirt with pride outside of Lawrence but the minute you hear someone call out, “Rock Chalk!” you have an instant connection - even if they’re complete strangers.

The best advice I ever got:

Simply to be kind and work hard. Both don’t require money, talent or success but can make such a huge impact on your life and others.

My best advice for college students:

You’ll hear a lot of people say, “Don’t take on too much,” as far as class load and activities. I beg to differ – don’t be afraid to challenge yourself and try new classes, activities, or experiences. You’ll be surprised not only by what you can handle, but achieve. It’s a time in your life when so many wonderful opportunities are available to you. Don’t leave KU wishing you would have tried or enjoyed more things.

My guilty pleasure:

Mexican food – bring on the queso!

What’s your favorite spot on campus?

I love the classic view of the Chi Omega fountain in the spring surrounded by bright red tulips. It’s a beautiful KU landmark that features panels designed by a student in 1955. I love that such a beautiful sight welcomes students, alums, and visitors onto campus each day.

What’s the best KU tradition?

The Rock Chalk chant, of course! I first learned the chant from my dad as a little girl, and I’d always ask him to do it. I’ve heard it at basketball games, graduations, and weddings, and it gives me chills every time.

What KU class surprised you the most?

My freshman year biology class. I was majoring in journalism and political science and needed a science class to fulfill my requirements. The professor was so engaging and fun. I learned so much and truly loved going to class. It ended up being one of my favorite classes that year!

What did you want to be when you were growing up

Ever since I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a writer. I attended the William Allen White School of Journalism at KU and learned so much from the classes and professors. I felt prepared to step into a variety of roles as a writer, and I still enjoy freelancing for many publications today.

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?

Mindy Kaling – she’s my favorite! She’s driven, funny, smart, and able to laugh at herself. All qualities I admire in a woman.

If you had your own Big Jay outfit, where would you wear it?

At a home basketball game, so I could experience all the fun Big Jay and Baby Jay have at the games. And hey, they’ve got the best seats in the house.
