Did you start your college experience at Murray State or did you transfer from another school?
I started as a freshman.

Why did you choose Murray State?
I fell in love with the area and atmosphere when I came to visit campus for the first time in the spring.

Are you involved in any extra-curricular activities?
I am an Alpha Sigma Phi here on campus. I’ve been able to learn a lot of leadership skills from my experiences with the fraternity, which will help me market myself better in the workforce after graduating.

What is the most interesting thing you have learned about yourself while being a student at Murray State?
I’ve found that I like high stress situations and I tend to thrive in them.

What has been your biggest challenge in making the change from high school to university life and how have you dealt with it?
Getting used to all the free time and having to figure out my schedule everyday and plan my work to make sure I get everything done.

What do you like about marketing? Have you learned anything unique about your major at Murray State?
I like that my area is a “super major” which gives me more experience in my field of study so that when I enter the workforce I am going to have a bigger knowledge base.

What are your career plans after graduation?
I want to get into small business sales after I graduate, I am open to staying in the area or moving if need be.
