Favorite Place on Campus

Right above the softball field, as I'm driving around the back of campus each morning.  As I turn the corner, I can see the "O" up on the hillside, and Klamath Lake below campus.  It's a great way to start each day!

Why I Enjoy Working in Campus Life

Working with students every day is such a great way to spend my time - I love the process of student development and supporting our student clubs and leaders in their growth and learning.
