What advice would you give students who are struggling academically?

Struggle usually comes with feelings of discomfort, anxiety, or fear. These uncomfortable feelings have a bad reputation, but they are actually helpful, built-in cues to alert us that something needs to change. Experiencing struggle is really just recognizing that what we've always done (or not done) is no longer serving us.  It's our signal to develop skills to jump a little higher, push a little further, ask for help, or discover a completely different method or path.

EXPECT struggle in college - academically, personally, socially....  Those are the very places where you can start seeing yourself become the person you envisioned when you signed up.


What do you love about Southeastern?

I love the cozy family feel of Southeastern. I can't walk anywhere on campus without seeing familiar faces.


What's a fun fact about yourself?

I've been an extra in several movies.
