Hometown: Council, Idaho
High School: Council High School
Class Year: Senior
Interests/Hobbies: I enjoy playing piano, reading, picking up cool rocks and anything crafty. I love science. I also enjoy watching TV sitcoms that have gone off the air, which range from Green Acres to Gilligan's Island.
Career goal: I've applied to the pharmacy program here at Idaho State University and hope to pursue a career as a pharmacist. I want to apply scientific knowledge to help people. I find the use of drugs to biochemically manipulate human physiology fascinating. With the right knowledge, I could help alleviate other people's pain, speed their recovery, or otherwise improve their quality of life through medicine.
Why ISU? I visited several college campuses during my junior year of high school. I was truly impressed by ISU's emphasis on academic excellence. I was offered a fabulous scholarship package, membership in the University Honors Program, and a spot in the luxurious Rendezvous Complex. Idaho State University was also far enough away from home to give me a little bit of independence, but close enough that I can go home when I want. Coming to ISU was a very easy choice to make.
ISU Experience: Overall, I have had a fantastic experience here. The professors are passionate about the subjects they teach and are genuinely concerned for the welfare of their students. I have enjoyed being a member of the Honors Program and I look forward to finishing up a degree here at ISU.
Nationally the amount of student debt following graduation continues to increase. For information on how you can help educate the next generation of great Idaho State University scholars contact the ISU Foundation or call (208) 282-3470.
