Why Linfield? The sense of community and pride at Linfield is tremendous. Whether it's helping someone else out, or picking up a rare piece of trash, Linfield students, faculty and staff are always looking out for each other and the college.

Favorite Campus Food: The ham and cheese omelet in Dillin is my favorite food on campus. It's delicious and a great Friday morning treat.

Best Time of Year: The best time of year on campus is in the first two weeks of the school year. There is so much excitement and energy on campus after a quiet summer.

Favorite Place to Travel: My most recent non-work travel destination was the Balkans - Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro and Bosnia i Herzegovinia, which were all interesting and beautiful in their own way.

What's Great About Oregon: As a skiier, I love that Oregon has the longest season in the country. Even in July and August, you can usually make at least a half day trip up to the mountain.

Favorite TV Shows: Even though it is now off the air, Friday Night Lights is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. I also don't miss an episode of The Amazing Race, and enjoy watching ESPN documentaries, such as the 30 for 30 series.
