Favorite Seattle restaurant: Red Mill Burgers. The bacon cheese burger is the BEST! This is the perfect spot to stop after a trip to the zoo!
A trip I'd like to take: A quaint countryside tour of Ireland and Scotland.
Family: My wonderful husband Michael!
Favorite movie: Notting Hill
Favorite sports team: March Madness is my favorite time of year to watch basketball, but Iím a Seattle fan, so I love the Mariners, Seahawks, and Sounders!
Favorite thing about SPU: The LOCATION! Set along the canal, next to downtown, and nestled in a beautiful neighborhood, makes SPU distinct. The ability to explore the city, the Puget Sound, and the surrounding areas is such a great advantage to being an SPU student!
Advice for high school/transfer students: Start visiting and learning about schools that interest you. Dig in, and ask questions! Itís important that you are knowledgeable about all of your options. Also, apply early to the schools youíre interested in ó even if they seem out of your reach. Go out on a limb. Your precious college experience depends on it!
