What is your favorite CUAA pastime or Concordia tradition?

I love CIT so much. It’s always a blast to support the team and enjoy all the hype, and traveling to other Concordia campuses is pretty awesome too!

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

The people at Concordia are some of the best people I’ve ever known. If you choose to come here, you won’t want to leave!

Any final words?

I admire the faculty and staff of CUAA, so to be recognized by them is a huge honor. I’m moved and grateful that they would choose me to receive this award.
