Hometown: St. Charles, Illinois
Major: Computer Science and Mathematics
Plans after graduation
I will be starting a Computer Science PhD program at Washington University in St. Louis this fall.
How did Augustana prepare you for life after graduation?
I've not only had the opportunity to take classes across departments, but build relationships across departments as well. By interacting with faculty and students from all academic disciplines, I have become well-rounded and prepared for any obstacle I may stumble upon.
What are you looking forward to about life after graduation?
More school and avoiding the working world as long as possible.
What will you miss about Augustana?
Anything and everything that encompasses Augustana.
What was your favorite memory from Augie?
Freshman year in Carlsson Hall.
What advice would you give to current students?
Take as many non-major courses as possible. You have your whole career to work in your field, but you only have a few chances to take that Philosophy or Astronomy course that caught your eye.
