Class Year: Senior
Major: Communication Sciences and Disorders
About Me: Born and raised in Wichita, I am extremely proud to call myself a Wichitan. I love this city and university with all my heart, which is why I wanted to work in the President’s Office. Calling this university my home wouldn't feel right if I didn't understand the large mechanics behind it, and working in the President’s office helps me understand the ins and outs to Wichita State, and only cultivates my love for it. Here at Wichita State I have been a member of the Delta Gamma Sorority, Housing & Residence Life, Bill & Dorothy Cohen Honors College, Student Government Association, Asian Student Conference, Student Ambassador Society, and Shocker Navigators.

Class year: Sophomore
Major: Psychology
About Me:  I was born and raised in Chase County, KS, a very rural community, but I always felt drawn to the city of Wichita. I am excited to be studying at Wichita State University, and I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology while working in the President’s Office. Someday, I hope to open a clinical practice close to my home town so I can give back to the community that raised me. I love NFL football and college basketball, playing sports, and watching The Office. Being a member of the Bill and Dorothy Cohen Honors College as well as being on the Honors Student Council has helped me get the most out of my learning experience here, and I can confidently say that I am proud to be a Shocker.

Class year: Sophomore
Major: Pre-Med
About Me: Originally from Dodge "the windiest" City in Kansas. However, that won't keep me away from returning to my hometown to open my medical practice. Currently, studying Chemistry Pre-Med at WSU while working the best gig on-campus as an Office Associate for Office of the President. The abundance of opportunities along with the warm, welcoming vibes that WSU provides is few of the many reasons why I was drawn to pursue my college education at this University. I am proud to be a Shocker!

Class year: Sophomore
Major: Biomedical Engineering
About Me: I grew up in Fort Scott, KS and it's a pretty typical Kansas small town. I have enjoyed all the different opportunities Wichita has to offer that I couldn't get back home. Being a Shocker has been a great experience so far, and I am looking forward to continuing my education here and learning more whether that's in a research lab, a lecture hall, or working in the Office of the President. During my free time, I enjoy playing guitar or rocket league and watching soccer. I am a member of the Bill and Dorothy Cohen Honors College and a Koch Scholar. I am proud to call myself a Shocker!
