Tell me about your experiences so far at Gustavus: I have really enjoyed Gustavus, although I have not had a "normal" college experience due to COVID, the campus does do virtual events that I have enjoyed.

I also have the sense that I am helping make changes that will better our campus community and strengthen who we are as Gusties.

Tell me about any high school athletic and academic achievements or awards that you have earned: I choose Gustavus because one, it was the only college I looked at that I could throw at. I also really like the idea of smaller colleges and getting to know my professors on a more personal basis. Gustavus has a really great science program which also drew me to Gustavus.

In your opinion what makes the Gustavus cross country/track and field programs different from other colleges?: From my time being here I definitely feel that our team is like a little family, I have met many great people on the team. Because of Gustavus being smaller it's easy to get to know others on the team, also that the coaches do many team bonding exercises that allow us to get to know each other and support one another in our events.
