What’s one of your goals for 2022?

One of my goals is to secure an internship for the summer or next semester.

What would you share with prospective students who are considering attending CUAA?

There is a place for you here. I love the community I have found at Concordia, and have no doubt that you will too!

If you could give a piece of advice to your fellow Concordia students, what would you say?

Go to events held on campus, such as, attending the performance of the Sound of Music from April 7th- 10th. Students see the show for free!
