Why did I choose ISU: I loved the environment that ISU had to offer, and how committed the staff is across campus to the success of all students. I also enjoy the amount of squirrels and chipmunks the campus has to offer.

What I like best about working at at ISU: I love working with students and being able to interact with them on a daily basis as well as watch them grow into leaders and being able to make their own decisions. Seeing how far they can develop over the semester makes my heart glow!
