I consider Loras my home away from home. I first visited the campus in high school because my older sister was a student athlete at Loras. I immediately fell in love with the community.
Loras is the right size for me, where I can gain a valuable education and become good friends with people in similar classes as me. I feel that I have truly grown as a leader and further enhanced my communication skills.
Loras has given me plenty of opportunities to get involved in clubs and organizations. I am currently the director of communications for the Chemistry Club, vice president of the Pre-Health Club and director morale for Dance Marathon.
Upon graduation, I plan to apply to dental school in hopes I will be accepted at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. I then plan to apply for residency in one of the dental specialties. I have always had a passion for this field and providing dental care to a community. I received my full license as a dental assistant this past summer and am also certified to take dental x-rays. I remember being very little and going into my local dentist’s office for the six-month checkup. After having braces in later years, I knew that I wanted to be an Orthodontist.
