University of Minnesota
Hometown: Woodbury, Minnesota
Minor: Retail Merchandising
Hobbies: My hobbies are: traveling the world, watching movies, intense workouts, Chinese dance, track and field, and trying new foods.
Why you chose the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities: I fell in love with the beauty of the University of Minnesota during my first campus tour. Additionally, I was drawn to the endless academic, social, and career-developing opportunities available at the University, and in the Twin Cities. It also doesn't hurt that there are many Fortune 500 companies in the Twin Cities, and many of them even conduct job interviews right on campus! I am a proud Golden Gopher and couldn't be happier here.
Favorite University of Minnesota class and why: Marketing 3040 - Buyer Behavior. This class taught me about strategies that retailers utilize to influence consumers' purchasing behaviors. The concepts I learned from this class not only provided me with knowledge that's useful for future marketing career, but also gave me insights about the motivations behind my own buying decisions. I'll never shop the same way again!
Favorite off-campus activities: Trying new restaurants, exploring new bike trails, Chinese dancing
Favorite U of M memory: Pride and Spirit day during Welcome Week as a freshman. This is a tradition that every new incoming freshman class will get the chance to experience. Having my entire class of over 5,000 freshman at the TCF stadium was a night to remember. We got to learn all the traditional football cheers while watching the marching band, cheerleaders and dance team perform. The energy we brought to the stadium was amazing and we even got a firework show! Afterwards, we all got to stand on the actual football field to form the traditional giant "M."
Favorite place to eat on campus: The Subway in Blegen Hall on West Bank. I feel like I can sniff out the smell of Subway's delicious fresh bread baking from miles away! Because of its convenient location on campus, I can grab a quick, cheap, and healthy meal on the way to class. What more could a student ask for?
Favorite thing about the state of MN: The seasonality. I love the hot summers and the beautiful snowy winters.
