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: The most interesting places I've ever traveled were the Balkans - Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro and Bosnia i Herzegovinia. Most recently, I traveled to Budapest, Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
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. Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose.
