What's your favorite thing about Cardinal View? 
I think my most favorite thing to do is connect with incoming freshman and incoming students in general. I love being able to be a part of their journey from the moment that they started.
What's your favorite memory from when you attended Cardinal View as an incoming freshmen?
My favorite memory is seeing my parents' reaction. Them feeling more ok with me coming to college and feeling reassured because we had all of our questions answered. They were reassured that I was going to be ok.

What advice do you have to help future Cardinals prepare for life at LU?
Always ask questions –– don't be afraid to ask questions! Learn more about the resources on campus, get involved and come open-minded. You never know what you're going to do when you come here.
Anything else you would like to add? 
Cardinal View is going to be super fun, I always recommend that any student interested in Lamar University come out to attend!
