"I first visited as a high school junior and absolutely fell in love. From then on, I worked really hard to get the highest test scores possible and do everything I could to get in. When I visited the nursing school senior year I got to go into a simulation class and work with mannequins. That was something I could see myself doing. The hands-on experience definitely sealed the deal for me.

I went to a really small high school, so I was ready for something bigger for college, but nothing that was going to be overwhelming. Ten thousand undergrads feels like the perfect size. Walking across campus, I see people I know but still get a variety. It’s a happy medium. All of my professors are really approachable, so it’s easy to talk to them if I have questions and get extra help by going to office hours."
