What is something you wish everyone knew about your major? Something I wish everyone knew about my major is that it is actually just one major! PPE stands for Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, and is a single degree meant to give that student the best core classes of three incredible programs.

What was your most impactful class or professor? My most impactful classes and professors have been Legal Environment of Business with Dr. Osborn, Philosophy of Religion with Dr. Benton, Acting Fundamentals 1 with Candace Vance, sailing, and Imaginative Writing with Professor Overstreet.

What are you excited for in your future career? What I'm most excited about in my future career is to dig my hands into building community! If there's one thing I've learned in my time at SPU, it's that belonging is made up of a family built on good leadership. I want to help provide that same warmth I've been given to others.

What advice do you have for incoming students? My advice for incoming students is to sign up for extracurriculars! Don't let classes rule all of your time at SPU, and don't wait to find a friend who will do it with you! Your college experience is going to be what you make it and I promise that there are so many adventures waiting around the corner if you can dip your toes into something new.
