Hometown: Willow City, ND
What made you decide to attend Dakota College at Bottineau?
It was the college closest to home, which is very comfortable to me. I’ve never enjoyed traveling, so the idea of going to an out-of-state college wasn’t so nice to me. I also love the community, so I did not want to leave.
How did you first hear about Dakota College at Bottineau?
My sister and a few of my friends went to DCB after graduating. They told me about it and I became interested.
What is your favorite part of learning on a smaller campus?
The closeness of the community. You can’t joke with professors and other students at the same time in a larger group or campus during class.
Why did you decide to attend a two-year college verses a four-year?
I wanted to get my generals out of the way first, so I could pursue my art degree when I transferred to a four-year college.
What do you think is the best part about DCB?
I enjoy the small classes and the library. You cannot have the humorous conversations we have in a large class. I love the library because I love to read!
What is DCBs “best-kept-secret” that no one ever told you about and you absolutely love?
It wouldn’t be a secret if I told you, now would it?
How do you feel about the small classroom sizes?
I love them. I feel comfortable with the people and the professors in the classes.
What's your favorite part of living in the dorm?
How easy it is to walk to and from classes. Also, being able to walk into my room and take a quick nap to recharge – that’s the best thing ever.
What do you like best about your program?
Being able to do what I love and do best – Draw.
What was your favorite on-campus activity?
I loved the freshman seminar scavenger hunt! It was so much fun.
