Hometown: Napier, New Zealand

Major: Adult Education and Human Resource Development

Favorite class: HRD 5201 Training and Development. My first class at the U of M and to begin with I wondered if I was in over my head! However, the support I received from family, faculty, other students and campus resources helped me through and gave me confidence for the rest of my program.

What is the most interesting student organization on campus? University of Minnesota Men's Rugby club.

What is your favorite random fact about the University? The University of Minnesota was established before Minnesota became a state.

What is the one experience students shouldn't miss? I'm a big sports fan, so don't miss the opportunity to attend a Gopher athletic event!

Advice to CSE transfer students: As an undergrad I attended a community college so I understand that the transfer process and requirements can seem confusing. Don't hesitate to contact me early in your educational career to ask questions about prerequisites, the admission process and majors.
