About me: I love hanging out with friends, reading, going on walks, and being outside. My favorite thing to do on campus is to go hammocking with my friends. If I had a superpower, it would be shapeshifting.


Class: Senior
Major: Kinesiology
Option(s): Pre-Physical Therapy
Hometown: Denison, Iowa
About me: I like to treat myself to boba from the 1+1 Tea shop after my exams. My favorite study spot is in the library; I usually reserve a room with friends. One thing that has helped me a lot has been to always ask for help when I don’t know the answer. And my favorite drink order from the Hub is the sparkling raspberry green tea.


Class: Senior
Major: Kinesiology
Option(s): Pre-Health/Pre-Physical Therapy
Hometown: Omaha, Nebraska
About me: I have a huge passion for overall health and wellness! I believe that physical and mental health go hand in hand. I decided to pursue learning as much as possible about both through the Pre-Health division of Iowa State’s Kinesiology department. If I’m not in class or studying at Parks (I’m a great study partner if you need one) I like to spend my time exercising, working, or enjoying my friends’ company. I also have a huge passion for cooking and drawing when I find the time. I’m looking forward to my last year as a Cyclone and can’t wait to see what this semester holds!


Class: Senior
Major: Kinesiology and Health
Option(s): Community and Public Health
Hometown: Oskaloosa, Iowa
About me: Hi everyone! My name is Megan, and this is my third year here at Iowa State. As a community college transfer student, I hope to bring some valuable information and advice to our group. With a strong interest in surgery, I’ve decided to further my education by obtaining my Surgical Technology Certification after graduation. My favorite place to study on campus is the Student Innovation Center or Forker, but I also enjoy the peace and quiet in my office at home! I’m so excited for this school year and I look forward to meeting each of you!
