Hometown: St. Croix Falls, WI

Alma Mater: Oak Hills Christian College - B.S. Business

Things you are most passionate about: God, People, Art (in a completely uneducated way), The Outdoors (yay for kayaks!), My Pet Chickens (search google images “Americana egg”).

Advice you would give new students: Get out there—try something new. Embrace cold night walks. Be aware of God when you’re looking at those stars. Take moments to listen to those around you. Go swing dancing. Respect your professor’s time. Work hard. Sleep hard. But, ultimately, trust that God is so much greater than your day-to-day struggles and IS able to do more than you could ever ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).

What you love about OHCC: This community is so close. You get to know everyone on some level, and develop some incredible relationships that last for years, and even a lifetime, after graduating.

Best advice you can give to a student searching colleges: Consider how different places will contribute to your faith-walk. Some colleges will immerse you in teaching, while others have groups to which you can be committed. Not every college is for you. Check out different schools, but trust your gut in the end.

Best kept Oak Hills Christian College secret: Lake Marquette is actually connected to the Mississippi River. You can even take a canoe from campus northward all the way to Bemidji. Or, you can go south, through a windy, thick-bordered river that feels more like the Amazon than a loon haven.

Hometown: Eagle River, AK

Alma Mater: Oak Hills Christian College - B.S. Business

Things you are most passionate about: God, My People, Basketball...I really like Basketball, Reading, and Slow Developing Movies.

Advice you would give new students: Be bold in your first year of college! Everyone is in the same boat being away from their home. Go make friends! Go to late night Perkins runs! Go pull all nighters with your friends doing homework that is due in 3 hours! (Dont actually. You should do your homework). College is a unique experience that you will not get again in life. Above all though keep God prioritized. He is the most faithful, consistent, and concerned Friend you will ever find.

What you love about OHCC: Everyone says community but its true. Someone is always around to hang out with. You get to know everyone including the professors and you do not find that at every college. The scenery is wildly peaceful and we have a lake in our backyard!

Best advice you can give to a student searching colleges: Really take some time to figure out the things that are important to you and find a college that matches those things. Listen to wise advice but also remember the college choice is your decision in the end. Nothing beats being within Gods will for your life. So chase that above everything else.
