Favorite thing about ESU:

Walking around our beautiful and easy to navigate campus. Our campus squirrels and ducks are always entertaining to watch as they run around campus.

When I was five years old I wanted to be:

 A trash-woman. Seeing them ride on the back of the trash truck was the coolest thing!

Advice for new Hornets:

Take the time to interact and get involved by interacting with different groups and people across campus and find your people. Having a close knit group of supportive individuals will make those late night study sessions in William Allen White library a fun and productive time!
