Indiana University
Major: Biology and Neuroscience
Hometown: Valparaiso, IN
Classification: Junior
IU is full of opportunities and academic endeavors, but my college experience has been most greatly defined by time spent with students and faculty from all over the world. As a member of the Hutton Honors College and by living in an Honors Residential Community, I have been able to meet and work alongside many others who share a passion for community service. By being a part of such an active student body, I have been able to give back and find my place here at IU.

Seems like it was only yesterday.  The crowd roaring in Assembly Hall; a sea of red engulfing speckles of blue; a new beginning.  I luckily happened to be in attendance when our Hoosiers upset the previously #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats.  Indiana University basketball is back!

Throw in victories over #2 ranked Ohio State and #12 ranked Michigan and you have the makings of a very exciting season for Hoosier basketball.

I have always been proud to call myself an Indiana Hoosier.  This is icing on the cake.

IU will always be #1

Along with the exhilarating ventures of our beloved Hoosiers, I am excited for a few more things that this new year and new semester have in store.

In May, I will be taking that MCAT, and, yes, I am really looking forward to it!  This is a chance to put everything that I have learned from my first two years together.  While working on my coursework, I will be doing everything I can to prepare myself for this coming test.

I’m also excited for our Honors Residential Community trip to New York City!  I’ve never been to New York, but I can’t wait to be in Times Square, Madison Square Garden, and Wall Street.  This is just another opportunity facilitated by the Hutton Honors College, which offers so much to IU students.  I will be sure to fill you all in on my adventures in the Big Apple!

Here’s to making 2012 the greatest year yet!
