Meet Your PALs


My name is Tyler Hall and I had the pleasure of growing up in Tonganoxie, Kansas. I am a physical education and health education major at ESU. I became a PAL because I wanted to help students discover their career and help them accelerate into their profession. 

Hi, my name is Kathryn. I am an Elementary Education major with a minor in Leadership. Along with being a PAL, I am also involved in University Activities Council (UAC) and The Bulletin. I became a PAL because I wanted to be the friendly face that helps incoming freshman feel comfortable. 


My name is Hannah, and I am from Tonganoxie, Kansas!  I am finishing up my freshmen year at Emporia State University, and I hope to be accepted into the Nursing program here to begin classes in the fall! I became a PAL because I want to help incoming students feel comfortable and confident with the decisions they are making regarding their education.

My name is Brittany, and my major is Crime and Delinquency Studies.  I chose to be a PAL because I enjoy helping people in anyway that I can. Also, getting involved on campus is a great way to make friends and gain connections!  

My name is Josue Mejia and I am from Junction City, Kansas. I am majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and hopefully minor in Chemistry. I became a PAL to be able to help new students easily transfer into Emporia State University. Personally, I know how hard and overwhelming it may be to transition into college. I would like to be a friendly face students can ask a question to, if they are afraid to ask someone else.



My name is Shelby. I am a freshman from Valley Center, Kansas. I am a Health Promotion major. In addition to being a PAL, I am involved in Ambassadors and Associated Student Government. I became a PAL to help make the transition for freshmen easier, and a little less frightening!
