My UNK Education: I have a degree in Comprehensive Psychology and will soon begin pursing a
Graduate level degree from UNK.
Favorite thing about the UNK:
To try and narrow down the things I love about UNK to one thing is impossible.
I’ll cheat a little bit and say my favorite thing is the “atmosphere.” I love how
I feel when I’m on campus, the relationships I’ve made with other students as
well as staff and faculty keep my days exciting and entertaining. The
atmosphere at UNK is second to none and is one of my favorite things about this
Hobbies and Interests: I love to compete, I’ll try and win at just
about anything and possibly get a little too intense about it. I have a few
intramural championship t-shirts…no big deal.
Favorite Super Hero: The Hulk is my favorite super
hero. He’s not only THE MAN, but to top it off, he can’t be beat. He gets his
strength from his anger and if you’re fighting him he is only getting more and
more angry, making him stronger and stronger…you see where I’m going with this?
Favorite place on campus: If I could be anywhere on
campus I would probably choose Cushing Field House. Everybody in there is in a
good mood and looking to have a good time. Whether it’s playing some 5 on 5
basketball, throwing some weight around, playing racquetball or just chatting
it up, the field house is a great place to spend time.
Favorite place in Kearney: There are so many great places around Kearney, but one of my all-time
favorites is Harvey Park. I always have such a great time at ole’ Harvey. It’s
where summer city softball and fall football leagues take place and is a great
way to meet members of the community.
Restaurant in Kearney: My favorite restaurant in Kearney is San
Pedro. I am a sucker for Mexican food and San Pedro is some of the best I’ve
had! Plus, they don’t mind refilling
your chips and salsa 10 times…. “FO FREE!”
Surprising facts about me: I have some slight, very minor, hardly
noticeable, not that strange, teeny tiny, OCD tendencies. For example, I can only get out of bed if the
clock time is ending in a 0 or 5 and if the digits don’t add up to be 13.
What I recommend doing while in Kearney: When you’re in Kearney, do whatever you think
you might enjoy because there are so many options. The biggest thing is not the
“what” to do, rather the “willingness” to do. Don’t be shy, have some adventures while in
Why I love UNK?: I love UNK because of its reliability, I trust the people that come
together to create UNK.
Why do you like the city of Kearney?: Kearney has allowed me to be a part of so
many great things, big and small, that have allowed me to have fun while
working towards a successful future.
