Geography Major: Environmental Science Concentration 

Minor: Literary and Cultural Studies 

About Me: I spent my first year of college at St. Kate's University in St. Paul, before transferring to La Crosse. I am president of the Geography Club, and co-captain of the SEMB color guard. I also work as a Peer Advisors in the Academic Advising office. After graduation I hope to find a job where I can continue to explore my passion for geography. I plan on going to grad school after a gap year. 

Study Tip:  Don't make studying a job, find a way to make it fun.

Geography Major: Geographic Information Science Concentration  

Minor: Earth Science 

About Me: In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, exploring the La Crosse area, and baking. One of my favorite things to do in La Crosse is to visit local shops and restaurants (Ranison's and Cool Beans are forever favorites of mine). After graduation, I plan to explore the field of geography and possibly get my master's in cartography.  

Study Tip: Stay organized! Know what content you’re solid on and what you really need to refresh on. It’s easy to fall into the trap of avoiding the harder studying with easier tasks. Prioritize reviewing the concepts you find challenging so you can use your time wisely and still have the freedom to have fun later!
