What is your most memorable experience at St. Norbert College: My favorite honors memory was being a Torch Leader and taking the new students on a scavenger hunt around De Pere.
What advice would you give to first-year students: My advice to younger students is that you should take advantage of your time in Bergstrom during your first year to get to know people. You will have the chance to interact with people who have similar interests to you and make friends that will last a lifetime.

What is your most memorable experience at St. Norbert College: St. Norbert College and the Honors Program provided me with so many unique opportunities and lifelong friendships. All of my favorite memories while at St. Norbert revolve around the time I spent with friends, whether that be simple things like conversations on the way to class, laughing in the caf, or studying in the library. The community at St. Norbert College is like no other!
What advice would you give to first-year students: You have an amazing four years ahead of you full of new opportunities, relationships, and knowledge. I recommend that in between studying and stressing, you take breaks to get to know the people around you and relax. All you have to do is try your best!
What’s next?: Following graduation in December, I plan to continue my job search in the field of freshwater sciences and/or hydrogeology. In the meantime I intend to volunteer in my community and visit SNC as often as possible.
Good luck and many thanks to all our December graduates with all their future endeavors!
