Favorite Eureka Spot:

My favorite spot here on campus is a Saturday afternoon at the football field. I love the atmosphere that is provided for all and the tailgating is awesome. I love to see the students and families come together!

Favorite Campus Event:

Homecoming. I love to see the alumni come back and the whole week is just a lot of fun for many students. It’s also a blast because it goes back to many traditions of the college.


In my spare time I love to lift, run and go rock climbing. On my to do list – skydiving! I love music and listen to it as often as possible. My music generally depends on what I’m doing but my favorite group growing up was Bon Jovi!

Why should you consider EC:

Eureka!!!! You found it! This place is home for many, myself included, and will become home to many of you! The people here are ones you can learn a great deal from. It also allows opportunities of a life time with all the experiences and knowledge you’ll learn. Lastly, you’ll be ready for the “adulting”. We all joke about growing up but when you leave you will already be able to step in and start leading wherever you go!
