    What is your favorite place on campus?
    My favorite place on campus is the John Vaughn Library because it has all the resources you could ever need to study and be successful at NSU. I always checked out a room in the library for extra quiet time and there was always a whiteboard and markers available to use.

    Where is your favorite place to eat in Tahlequah?
    Southside Burgers! It is definitely a hidden gem of Tahlequah, but the burgers are amazing!

    What is your favorite thing to do in Tahlequah?
    My favorite thing to do in Tahlequah would be to go and kayak the Illinois River. The river scenery is beautiful and so much fun.

    How did you know the college you chose was the right fit?
    I knew NSU was the right fit when I stepped onto campus. Taking a tour around campus I couldn’t help but notice how gorgeous the campus was and how easy it was to get to places. The faculty, staff and students I came into contact with along the way were all so friendly and wonderful that it was hard to leave. Everyone seemed to care about what I wanted in a school and what I wanted to major in. They wanted to make sure that I was comfortable and could see myself making NSU my home.
