Hometown: West Jordan, UT
Degrees: Masters in Professional Communication 2014, Southern Utah University; B.S. in Political Science and Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations 2012, Southern Utah University
Favorite Spot on Campus: The Leavitt Center For Politics office. I was originally a transfer student from UVU and didn't know anyone at SUU. The students at the Leavitt Center invited me to be involved and became my home throughout my college career.
What little known fact about SUU do you like to share most? That SUU offers over $30,000 in study abroad scholarships each year, yet only about 4% of students study abroad each year (In fact, only about 1% of all American students study abroad annually).<
Favorite Quote: “Yesterday I was clever and tried to change the world. Today I am wise and try to change myself." -Rumi
Hobbies and Interests: Mountain biking, golfing, basketball, and hiking.
Favorite Place to Eat in Cedar City:Two restaurants hold a dear place in my heart: Ninja Sushi & Steakhouse and Lupitas Mexican food.
People would be surprised to know that: I lived in China for a semester with my wife and baby.
Best bit of advice for students looking for a college/university?Ask yourself what you want to get out of your education. SUU is the place for someone who wants their professors to know them and care that they graduate. It's also a great place to stand out if you work hard.
