What's your favorite thing about Cardinal View? 
My favorite thing about Cardinal View is definitely the atmosphere. Everyone is super hyped that day and they come together for the event. It's really a great atmosphere –– you also get a free shirt so that's a good perk.

What is your favorite memory from when you attended Cardinal View as an incoming freshman? 
I actually was scheduled to attend Cardinal View, but we had a tornado that day. But, thanks to the LU Crew, we were still able to get a tour in. We saw a bunch of areas on campus so it was still pretty cool.

What advice do you have to help future Cardinals prepare for life at LU? 
This is a great question. Build that sense of community whether that's through a fraternity/sority or not because I was also in a fraternity for a little bit –– rush ATO! If you can get a study group going –– just any sort of community. Even if it's a Cardinal Community. You'll need those good, deep relationships throughout your time here.
Anything else you would like to add? 
Show up, come out and you'll enjoy it!
