Favorite thing about ESU:

Everything! I feel like it is impossible to not find something for everyone. Each day, we are given the tools and interactions to find what makes ESU special for each individual. Just get out and find where you belong—you won’t have to look long.

When I was five years old I wanted to be:

A Major League Baseball player . . . or a rock star!

Advice for new Hornets:

Don’t be afraid to ask questions or to say hi to someone new each day. By doing so, you’ll continue to learn and build friendships.

Hey future Hornets! I am so pumped that you are considering Emporia State University! As soon as I arrived at ESU, I knew that I had found my new home. My life was busy, but ESU made it one of the most remarkable journeys I have ever taken. Because of this, I decided to stay professionally to encourage others to pursue their passions here. I would love to talk to you about some of your drives and passions and tell you what ESU has to offer! I cannot wait to welcome you to the Hornet Nation!
