What is your favorite Sandburg place/memory: My favorite Sandburg memory was spending time with my teammates and friends. I am so grateful for the long lasting friendships Sandburg allowed me to create. 

Why Sandburg is a great school to attend: Everyone from the staff, faculty, and coaches want success for each and every student at Carl Sandburg College. I have experienced Sandburg as a student, a volunteer, and now as an employee! I am a testament to why this school is a great choice. Not only am I a Galesburg local, I am a graduate of Galesburg High School and an alumni of Carl Sandburg College. During my time as a student at Sandburg I participated in the TRiO program and I was a student athlete, I played both volleyball and softball. Upon graduating from Illinois State University I interned at Sandburg in the Student Life Department. 


Now, I am excited to serve in the role as Admissions Recruiter at my alma mater. I am excited to share with prospective students just how awesome Carl Sandburg College is!
